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"

Static meshes with a tessellated material do not block visibility traces, resulting in absurd occlusion culling computation times

The artists on my game's team made the tunnel walls' materials have tessellation enabled. We were battling a performance bug, which was eventually narrowed down to a long computation time on occlusion culling. On a hunch, I pulled up the Visibility Collision view, to discover that the tessellated meshes were completely transparent, despite them being completely opaque when viewed normally. Once we disabled tessellation on those materials, the problem went away.

So, basically, tessellated meshes don't block visibility traces. Is this by design or a restriction of how tessellation works?
