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"

Pixelated Ambient Occlusion

Hi :) i noticed recently that the ambient occlusion in my project is some sort of pixelated or composed out of "shadow-clouds". These pixelated shadow-clouds move if the player moves through the scene, so there are not fixed or something (but they stay as a whole where the ambient occlusion has to be). Has anyone else had this problem and knows a solution for this?

I use FXAA for AA and have all settings on epic, the problem appears throughout all resolutions :(

Hi BeeHive,

At the moment this is functioning as intended. There were some changes that came about with 4.8 with the post process volume and one of those things was ambient occlusion.

There are still improvements that can be made by the developers (which has a request in with UE-13256).

You can read more information here in the answer to this post: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/205268/ambient-occlusion-ssao-jitter-in-ue4-48-promoted-b.html

Thank you!
