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"

Static Shadows Disappearing

Pic: https://snapr.pw/i/15ecf00182.png

As you can see, the tree's (instanced foliage) static shadow is disappearing the nearer it is to the camera, this appears to correspond with CSM's dynamic shadow distance. The foliage/trees are set to only cast static shadows and no dynamic shadows. This question: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/188994/undefined.html seems to have the same problem.

The other issue is that regardless of distance the trees seem to never self-shadow.

Hey lime517,

The post you provided a link to has now been reported as a bug with the tag UE-12005. Keep an eye out for the implemented fix in our upcoming releases. Since this is a newly entered bug there is not an associated version in which the fix is planned to be integrated. I will update this post when a fix has been made.
