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"

Lightbleed on static mesh

Hello UEAnswers!

I recently updated my Unreal Engine to version 4.6 and wanted to build the lighting for my level again.

I noticed that when I build my light in version 4.6 it gives me weird lightbleed through the edges of the static meshes that are affected by the light.

Is this a misconfiguration on my part or is this a bug with the Unreal Engine?

The things to check when looking for reasons for light bleed would be to start with building lighting on Production vs preview and if you're still having issues then next you would want to check the lightmap resolution and lightmap UVs are setup properly.

Give that a shot and let me know.
