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"

[Mac OSX Yosemite] Lighting Won't Apply After Bake

Recently, I moved a project over from Windows to Mac. Besides an error where SSR isn't compatible in Unreal's shaders (but is on Windows), everything seemed fine. However, I've done two separate Production Lightmass bakes now (each about 25-30 minutes, both reaching 100%) and the new Lightmaps aren't showing up!

I've used this same Mac for past bakes (I think it was still 4.7) and I've never encountered this error before. I have seen a message appear in the past saying something like "Lighting has been built" and you can select "Apply Now" or something along those lines. Even when I go into Play Mode, I get the error saying "Lighting needs to be rebuilt" in the top left corner of the editor.

Is there an "Apply Now" button I need to press in the editor to let the Lightmap changes occur? If so, where can I find it since the notification won't show up? Is there a new bug with 4.8 for Mac that builds the lighting, but won't apply it? Am I just doing something wrong here?

Thank you for anyone willing to help me out. :)
