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"

Bloom changed in version 4.12?

To anyone listening,

I'm concerned about some changes in the way materials are behaving in 4.12: I'm on of the guy working on RedOut and, converting the project to 4.12, we've noticed that all our trails, with a fancy emissive material, started to bloom WAY TOO MUCH. We're at retinal damage level, even keeping the emissive parameter of materials low (about 1.5).

This happened only to materials ON MOVING OBJECTS. Static pieces of environment didn't changed their behaviour.

Question is: something changed in bloom calculation and/or antialiasing in this version, compared to 4.11?

Any suggestion will be really precious, because Beta is coming and it would be really painful to tune down all the post process, working just fine on every other rendered piece in scene.

Ok, I fixed it: if you have problem with excessive bloom on materials, try to detach any panning texture with noisy patterns working on it. It will work fine again.
