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"

Distance Fields, Forward renderer working?

Hello, can anyone confirm that they have seen distance field traced shadows and DFAO working under the forward renderer in 4.14?

My initial experience was that Unreal would crash when visualizing distance fields and subsequently I have not seen these features working.

thanks e

Product Version: UE 4.14

Hi Edmonde,

Thanks for reporting this. I've submitted a ticket for this to be investigated. You can follow the status here if you'd like: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-40346

Distance Fields do work for stationary lights currently, but not for dynamic only. Shadow casting for movable lights has not been implemented in 4.14 but should be working in 4.15. I'm not entirely sure if DFAO is expected to work currently in forward, though. Forward Rendering still has some features that are missing that will be added over the next several releases.
