Why are there black patches on my terrain?
While I have searched and read about various issues related to black areas appearing on terrain, I haven't found one yet that looks like my issue. If this has been covered in a thread, please point me to it, and my apologies for asking again.
I am attaching a screen of what I see. This was taken right after a lighting rebuild. The edges of the black patches are sharp initially, but if I use any sculpting tool and just click once on a black patch, the edges soften. Very small black patches may even disappear with this, but never with the large patches.

So if you want to brighten the shadows and add some ambient fill light, try adding a 'Skylight' to help reduce the contrast between your landscape's materials and the shadows. You will notice a difference immediately.
You can also tweak the 'Auto-Exposure' setting within the Post Process Volume to brighten the dark areas like shadows when you enter into the area. It will automatically adjust the brightness within the given area based on the parameters set within the 'Auto-Exposure' option.
Landscape with Directional Light Only
Landscape with Skylight Added
As you can see there is a clear different as soon as you add a 'Skylight' actor.
If you have further questions please let me know.
