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"

Texture rendering quality in engine/play


we've been having some major issues with our game's textures. They are on a 3D model with a plane and the texture is simple translucent, emissive material. It's especially bad on the text. I've already tried without mip-maps, without AA (makes it sharper, but creates some massive pixel crawling all-around). Here's the texture in PS compared to in-engine:

I can post additional details if you can think of something, but I simply can't think of anything to add and searching hasn't yielded any help either. The texture looks fine when viewed in the editor as well, it just scales horribly and is blurry in-engine.

EDIT: Just to make sure, I've tried different texture filtering as well. Nearest off course makes it a bit sharper, but it also creates nasty pixel crawl and the quality isn't very good still.

thanks for the comment. I've already checked to see if driver forced AA is messing with it and there was none toggled on.

I've improved the situation by decreasing the card resolution from 1K to 512x (somehow downsampling the texture in UE4 creates noticeable shimmering in texture instead of increase quality, I will have to check the filtering again), toggling Never Stream on and disabling mipmaps.

Now the issues is that we can't separate FXAA/TXAA just from the cards, the choice is to go for blurry cards or aliased in-game world. The text render still looks rather bad, any advices on how to improve the quality of a text renderer, especially in motion and when viewed from a distance?

Cheers, Tatu

Sorry, unfortunately I'm not really into the details. :(

Hi there. I got a similar when I forced FXAA in the Nivida control panel. Don't know if this applies to you.
