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"

Realtime Lighting

Hey,

Is there a way to render shadows realtime in UE4? I've got a pretty big terrain and light building takes forever! I started yesterday morning (on medium settings) and it's still 0%. So I tought maybe I can render shadows realtime for the objects that are visible to the player.

Kind Regards, Dyronix

Product Version: UE 4.7

Hi Dyronix,

You only need to set your lighting to Movable. By default it is set to Stationary which will bake static shadows and use dynamic shadows for movable objects such as physics bodies and characters.

You can read more about lighting here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/LightingAndShadows/index.html
