UE4 Dynamic Shadow Pop
When I put a static mesh and light together in Blueprint, then put the light in my scene the shadow pops in and out at a certain distance. I have a post process volume as seen in the second screenshot. I've checked the world settings, blueprint settings, engine settings, and project settings. Could I have missed something? Or is this a known issue?
What's happening here is that you're light is no longer being occluded by the mesh that is no longer being rendered due to its distance bound scale. You will need to increase the distance bounds scale via the details panel for your mesh. It is set to a default of 1.0, but if you increase this you can get the mesh not to occlude for a longer distance. It is not recommended to do this unless you need to for your specific meshes. Only increase incrementally. Try a scale of 2 and see if that helps. :)
