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"

Forward rendering performance drop for VR

Forward shading config settings as follows:


Scene is a typical outdoor scene with a Skylight sky and directional "sun" light. After turning on forward rendering render time went from 6.55ms (deferred) to 11.05ms (forward). I have attached the reference scenes (left is deferred) and the GPU profiles. The biggest leap seems to be in computing shadows... which I was not aware would be affected by switching to the forward renderer.

Been poking around with it a bit more. Still haven't determined the performance loss.
