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"

Problem with light intensity in tight spots (indirect lighting?) [ARCHVIZ]


I have problem with, as I assume, indirect lighting, or tweaked editor values. I do use bounce cards in my project, with high intensity spotlight (70000). I have placed lightmass portals only in windows, and tweaked the worldsettings and baselightmass.ini


And baselightmass with tweaked values (production quality build) :


The result is a good lighting, but with the highlights in the tight spots, when the objects are close to the walls (not in every case). You can see those highlights on following :

alt text alt text alt text

I do not have any light leaks, my meshes are stick together and this "backlight" happens even behind the painting, for no reason. Maybe it has something to do with the scale of photons? How to repair this?

Hi Einz and maSZynke,

After messing around with this for a few and using your lightmass.ini and world settings I've not been able to reproduce this in the realistic rendering demo Epic made available or in a blank project. It's likely it could be some content issues or lighting setups that isn't a problem in these.

If either of you have a sample project that can reproduce the issue you're having here I'd be happy to look. Also, I tired in 4.13, so there could have likely been an issue with an older release like 4.11. Though, I'm not sure what version maSZynke is using.
