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"

Strange artefact on iOS device

Hi all,

when launching my project on an iPad Air, I see some strange artefacts appearing sometimes when moving the camera around. The project is based on the first person blueprint template. The following image shows the artefact (a grey/black pixellated circle that pops out and then disappears):

You can also see the problem in a video: https://youtu.be/rZ479fq9Sbo

The problem does not manifest while using the mobile preview on the desktop - only on the device. I am using UE 4.8.2, iPad Air with iOS 8.4, Mac OS X Yosemite.

Could try disabling PostProcessing using show postprocessing on the console? That will tell us if this is a post processing issue, but I think it might a bloom issue.

Thanks for the very quick reply! Yes, disabling post processing gets rid of the problem.

I had bloom enabled in my project. I now have first disabled it via setting its intensity in the post-process volume to 0.0, but the issue remains. By removing it from the project settings, the problem disappears.

Ok, I'll talk with some of the mobile rendering engineers and see if anything has changed from 4.7 to 4.8 in that area. I know we had this fixed at some point.

Don't know if it might be related, but I have disabled temporalAA (never get it to work on the device) and I am using MSAA on the device.
