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"

Light Bleeding - Light Propogation


I'm getting a light bleed issue on my environment. I had a similar issue before with my walls and I manged to fix them by increasing the thickness of my walls and tweaking the shadow bias. Unfortunetly, i can't increase the thickness on the gun or the "paper" (flat planes).

Is there a way around this?

Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

At the moment this is a known limitation with Light Propagation Volumes. This is not a production-ready feature and there will be instances where it will fail to hold up. While good results can come from have a fully exterior scene, using both interior and exterior environments with LPV still pose an issue.

Once this feature is being actively developed limitations like this will be a focus to get corrected.

Thank you!
