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"

Light casted on wall is too sharp.

Hello, do you know how can I make the shadow on the wall more realistic (softer)? I did search in the UE4 docs and tried to tweak the pointlight parameters to no avail.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Ikos,

You should only need to adjust the Source Radius to get the softer falloff for the point light.

I hope that helps,
