Why is Mesh Streaming Distance not working correctly with scaled meshes?
We have hundreds of meshes from Unity that have been imported in UE4. We changed the Mesh Build Scale to 100 100 100 .
Because of that the textures streaming distances are wrong; textures look blurry unless we are realy close to the object. Its possible to fix this by changing the Streaming Distance Multiplier on the mesh property matrix but I'm not sure if its the proper way.
Shouldn't Unreal engine do this internally for custom build scaled meshes? The reason why I ask this is because I notice now that although the textures are being streamed properly, the lightmaps are NOT (there are very noticeable lightmap pops now).
So I guess there are questions that need answers; 1. Is the texture blurryness a bug that should be fixed for meshes that have custom build scales or is this normal and we should manually go change the streaming distance multiplier? 2. Are the lightmap pops a bug that should be fixed for meshes that have custom build scales or is there a parameter somewhere like the Streaming distance that should be setup?
Hey bigzer -
I wanted to touch base and see if this issue has been addressed with you. While the best solution is to reexport the mesh, but try to adjust the Auto Distance Scale setting in the Static Mesh Editor >> LOD Settings >> Auto Distance.
