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"

Building Lighting: How To Speed Up?

I'm having great trouble building my lighting for my scene in Unreal. I'm not using any additional lights other than the sky sphere blueprint, the light source & sky light that gets provided to you at the start of a project. My PC is plenty powerful to be able to handle Unreal.

Is there anything I can do that can speed up the process because it sits at 0% for way over 10 minutes before it increases at all.

Depending on how big your map is and how much stuff is in it, if there is a lot of things for the lighting to be rebuilt, it will take a substantially longer ammount of time to build the lighting.

One thing that can help is placing Lightmass Importance Volumes in your level, this will essentially tell the engine to concentrate the lighting on these areas, some more information on them can be found here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/LightingAndShadows/Lightmass/Basics/

Hope that helps.
