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"

Lighting build explanation needed.

Hi there!

I have some issues with building lightning, I guess I am doing something wrong, I hope you are able to help me!

Here an image before building, it is a static point light. As you can see the shadows are perfect, you can even see my vertices of the lamp : alt text

Here an image after building, as you can see, no light is present at all! And yes, the meshes do have light maps. alt text

Now I change the light to stationary. After building this is the result. The shadows are not perfect, but it seems to have build some lighting! (See the pixelated shadows (This is because it is a major mesh, with a relative low resolution light map) alt text

And if I set the point light at movable, the shadows are horrible, it does not even detect the mesh of the lamp. alt text

Can anyone help me with this by explaining why I get those results at each setting? Every mobility change does not result in what I expect (Except stationary), especially not if you read the lightning documentation: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/LightingAndShadows/

I want to build my lighting static, with the same result of my first image (Not build with a static light, and/or the third image (build with a stationary light).

I cannot "not build" the lights due performance, or use stationary lighting everywhere, also due performance.

With the kindest regards,
