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"

Planar Reflection not showing in 4.13.1


I am not getting any planar reflections in 4.13.1. Tried different projects, settings, the works. Is anyone experiencing this too?

Hello ArieCrow,

I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Could you provide screen shots of your any materials/settings that may be involved with this issue?

  4. Does this happen in any other templates other than the VR template?

Hello Rudy

Thank you for taking the time to address my problem.

Actually you are right. The problem seems to be specific to the VR Template. I am getting the planar reflections in a clean project.

But still i need the VR template functionalities. Is there a way to migrate the content so it would work in a clean project?

Have you successfully gotten planar reflections in the VR template?

Thank you Arie

This is currently working as intended for the VR template. The config files for the VR template cut out a lot of the higher end rendering features that are too expensive for VR like a lot of the post process screen space rendering features for AO and reflections. Planar Reflections falls into this category as well. I hope that this information helps.

Make it a great day
