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"

Improper Lighting when a light is behind a wall

This image mostly explains what is happening. alt text

I have rebuilded the lighting several times, even on the 'production' setting. Any ideas?

Edit: this image better displays my problem. alt text

What exactly are you referencing to as improper lighting? I don't think I can see anything strange on the screenshot.

Sorry. I added another image that shows my problem better. There is no seams in the walls, yet the lamp's light still is being rendered on the walls.

looks like you may have to reduce your attenuation radius on the light maybe? post a pic of the scene in editor.

Reducing the attenuation radius fixed it. Thanks bro.
