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"

RenderTarget suddenly empty

I have set up a level to capture some 3D models into RenderTargets and then save those RenderTargets to Texture. This worked as expected a few days ago, but returning to add a new model to the level and creating a new RenderTarget now yields an empty RenderTarget. Even worse, opening my old RenderTargets shows they are empty now as well. The preview thumbnail for these RenderTargets is rendered correctly, but when opened or "Create Static Texture" is selected for the RenderTargets, they are empty. I'm unsure what to do from here...

Hey GrimlessBBS,

Are your render targets set to 'Update Every Frame'?

If not, you will need to either manually update them or enable that checkbox. Can you provide me with some steps so I can reproduce this on my end in a new blank project?

I will say that sometimes all it takes for a SceneCapture2D actor to update is to simply move it a few units with it placed in the world, and that should do the trick.

Let me know if you have further questions.
