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"

Sobel Edge post process shadow problem

I am using a Sobel Edge post process material. I have a strange shadow in in my level that stays a fixed distance away from the camera. If I move forward, the shadow retreats. Changing the thickness of the edge does effect the shadow distance somewhat, but I cant get rid of it entirely. Any ideas?

EDIT: For anyone who comes across this in the future, the MaxDistance of the Sobel Edge post-process material was too close to the player, hence the effect. We made sure the MaxDistance was large enough to encompass the whole level and the shadow disappeared.

Default value was about 40,000, we had to increase it to 3,000,000
