Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I'm having the same issue. What actions to take to fix this? My scene doesn't have stationary or dynamic lighting. All static.

Do you probably use a material with reflections?

Thx for you feedback figther5347. I dont know. I have purchased the objects from the Unreal store and from 3D Textures. The strange thing is that they seem to have this altitude limit. Above a certain altitude everything is fine.

Just do a double click onto the material from the object and check if something is connected to roughness and metallic -> also make sure that a reflection capture actor is near it
