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"

Monitor Editor Performance Bug

The Editor scales down texture resolution even when Monitor Editor Performance is unchecked. Auto scalability based on performance is still enabled somehow.

Hey Yaaks83,

What you are more than likely seeing with the texture resolution is actually an effect of Texture Streaming. What is happening is that your scene is consuming more memory than is allowed to be allocated, so certain textures begin to stream out of memory and render at a lower resolution to occupy less of the memory.

Texture streaming is based on a number of heuristics like Texture Group and Texture LOD bias etc. I would take a look at our Texture Streaming documentation to figure out where you memory is going and how to account for the low resolution textures.

Texture Streaming

With all of this said, if that does not resolve your issue can you provide me with a screenshot of your problem so I can visualize what you are experiencing?

If applicable, could you also provide me with some steps so I can reproduce the issue on my end?

Let me know if you have additional questions.

I unchecked texture streaming, It worked! Thanks!. I had assumed that it would load the textures at max resolution, and not lower mip-levels because its exceeding the memory allocation limit.
