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"

Blackness in certain screen space reflections.

Just noticed that even though screen space reflections works fine for most thing... if the object in the reflection is itself reflective... then the reflection ends up turning black for that object... looks terrible for my cityscape.

I might be wrong here, but I believe the engine does only single pass on reflections and doesn't support nesting - hence when it finds a reflection of a reflection it's unaware of what it should be and just renders it black

would be nice if it could just default those areas to the reflection probes or something.

Are the reflection spheres/cubes set around them correctly (range, position)?

avatar image kurylo3d Feb 28 '16 at 06:11 AM

yes. But regaurdless screenspace always takes priority over a reflection sphere.

You might need to wait for one of the rendering experts, cause I haven't got that far, sorry :)
