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"

Material quality level: force low quality?

In the editor there is an option to set the Material quality level to either high or low for the viewports. My question is when I run a standalone build the materials revert to high quality. Can I force all materials in my scene to stay at the low quality in standalone?

I'm attempting to get the most efficient materials for a VR project.

Feature Level Switch or Quality Switch node in material editor can help you prepare your materials accordingly. Other than those you may find some useful console commands over here:

The material quality level is determined by the r.MaterialQualityLevel CVar. You can set that on a device-by-device basis in DefaultDeviceProfiles.ini or based on scalability level in DefaultScalability.ini

Or in C++, you could do something like this

 static IConsoleVariable* MaterialQualityLevelVar = IConsoleManager::Get().FindConsoleVariable(TEXT("r.MaterialQualityLevel"));
 MaterialQualityLevelVar->Set(NewQualityLevel, ECVF_SetByCode);

(and of course you can also read from MaterialQualityLevelVar to get the current setting)

It's an int and 0=low, 1=high
