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"

Extreme usage of memory when open texture...

Hi guys, I have this problem: when I try to open for the first time one texture from the Kite Demo, the ue4 extreme usage of memory (just for one texture the consume its over 3GBram with a peak of 5/6). The engine freeze for 3 or 5 minutes, when the texture is loaded all stats go back to normal. My question is this, it's a normal thing? P.S. My computer its not a workstation but for me just for open one texture, this consume its seem too high. Sorry for my English ^^ alt text

This is expected with larger texture files. Especially like the ones from the Kite Demo content.

The reason it appears to "freeze" is because the first time these assets are opened the Derived Data Cache has to be written so that it will open more quickly the next time.

This is also why if you look at the contents warning before downloading this is already mentioned that it will take a while to open on the first load for the map. The DDC has to be written. If you open just a texture this is the same just not as extreme of a wait because it's not for the entire scene.
