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"

Wrong colors in 4.15P1

Look at these two screenshots:

alt text alt text

You see that by multiplying the blue color, it becomes purple.

In earlier engine versions it stays blue and just gets a lot of bloom.

Hey Ed, Issue is now marked "By Design". Can you explain how can this be like this by design? For example, how multiplying 0 by any value can be anything but 0? I don't really get the math here.

Iiiii was about to ask the same thing...

I'm following up with a couple of the developers to see if this was, in fact, a deliberate change. If it wasn't we'll re-open the ticket for investigation, if it is I'll provide some context to the ticket that has been marked as "by design."

Thanks, everyone!

Someone on Discord suggested it's a consequences of transition to Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) HDR color rendering.

I've updated the ticket with information about this.

This is a deliberate change where we now use r.TonemapperFilm 1 instead of 0 by default. You can get the old behavior by switching back to 0.

Look for more information about this change in our Release Notes for 4.15.

No wonder many people frustrated:

the "new" tonemapper setting is actually ignoring all the tonemapper settings in the PP volume

Roses are purple, violets are red. And the blue don't exist anymore.

Check out the public notes on the JIRA ticket. They describe in a bit more detail why this change is intentional and tell you what Cvar to change to get the old behavior.

avatar image Betazero Feb 17 '17 at 07:56 PM

How do I get my emissive blue and red back?? If this is intentional I feel like maybe they are colorblind :). Blue becomes purple and red goes orange. Its very weird because logically for me at least the old way made way more since.

avatar image Betazero Feb 17 '17 at 07:58 PM

Also I have messed with bloom and toes and feet and knees and all :) I just want RGB back. Well green actually is ok so just R and B

I suspect my problem with an emissive material in 4.15 Pre is linked to this:

There is not the same "blooming glow" as in 4.14, even after I enter the recommended console command r.TonemapperFilm 0 to get the old behaviour.

Scenario: Blank Project in 4.14 and 4.15, a single cube with the following simple material:

This is what it looks like in 4.14:

And this is 4.15 after console command r.TonemapperFilm 0:

Any hints, please?

This isn't a bug. The default bloom settings have been modified in 4.15 to give a more physically accurate result. You can still change the settings to suit your needs.

avatar image Luos Feb 09 '17 at 07:31 PM

I wonder if I am the only one who appreciates these color/bloom/emissive/tonemapper changes.

I feel for you Ed, having to explain it over and over.

avatar image digitallysane Feb 10 '17 at 12:03 PM

You're not the only one ;)

avatar image necspenecmetu Feb 10 '17 at 12:48 AM

Thank you very much for your quick reply, and sorry if this was obvious, but the only info I got from the ticket and various threads was to set r.TonemapperFilm to 0 to achieve the old behaviour, I wasn't aware that other settings have to be tweaked as well. I assume all these changes and settings will be laid out in more detail in the major release notes and will wait for them.

avatar image Ed Burgess ♦♦ STAFF Feb 10 '17 at 02:18 PM

Yup. I have access to our internal documentation so it isn't a problem. You will find all of this info in the 4.15 release notes once it goes public. :)

I don't mind pointing things like this out. Actually, it is better that our community is so vigilant about finding changes that could possibly be bugs in the engine.

We have already logged dozens of issues with the previews because of our users. Keep up the great work guys!

Can we get a simple checkbox in project settings to just put Tonemapper at 0? Personally I think it should default to 0 and then you have to turn it on to use it.
