How to set to movable without loose lightmaps on actor?
Setting an actor to movable commonly loose its lightmaps, ok.
But, now we need lightmaps to be preserved because this time actors are white doors.
The whole building has lightmaps, doors too. Here comes the problem: Doors have open/close animations. When we set them to movable, lose lightmaps and visual difference between whole building and doors looks simply horrible.
Are there any solution to this scenario ? Thanks.

Hi Lord Pol,
You can enable the option for "Light as if Static" on the movable actor, but this setting is meant for Actors that will not change position too much. Something like a door would see really bad artifacts where it would likely turn black if it rotated too much and the shadow cast by the door on a statically lit floor would not change either.
Your options are to either use stationary lights that take into account movable actors and cast dynamic shadows for movable actors or if you need to keep the environment completely statically lit then you will want to adjust the Volume Lighting Samples placement to be more dense to help blend the actor better in the environment. This documentation should help explain this as well.
