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"

[BUG] Color grading not working when playing

This is the second project where I've discovered that my color grading settings are completely different between the Editor Viewport and the Play In Editor/Stand Alone game. This project is using 4.13.2 but the other is using 4.14.3

Here's a screen shot of what it looks like between the two:

I can't exactly color grade my scene if there's a difference between the two. In fact, I tried adjusting the values and discovered that the Color Grading is not working at all in-game. Doesn't matter what I set the values to, there's no change. If I change the Auto Exposure it works, but nothing else seems to.

Steps to re-create:

 1 - Dragged in a Post Process Volume and checked the Unbound bool. 
 2 - Set the Saturation values to X = 1.0, Y = 0.0, Z = 3.0
 3 - Set the Gamma values to 0.8 in all 3
 4 - Set the offset values to X= .002, Y= 0.0, Z= 0.002
 5 - Set the Scene Color Tint to R= 1.0, G= 0.981151, B= 0.783243
 6 - Set Auto Exposure Min Brightness to 0.03 and Max Brightness to 0.03

Product Version: UE 4.13

Hey TorQueMoD,

So I did not get the same results, and I believe I know why you are seeing something so different. Check your character blueprint to make sure you are not overriding the post processing settings within your characters Post Processing settings.

Also make sure you are not setting the exposure within the viewport dropdown menus. Can you reproduce this in 4.13.2 and/or 4.14.3 in a blank third person blueprint project?

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

Definitely not setting the exposure through the viewport. I am using a marketplace package called "Quality Game Settings" though and it is very likely that it's hijacking my Post Process. I'll try using a different character to see if that fixes the issue. I didn't even know you COULD set post process inside the character. Thanks.

Ok the problem is most definitely the Quality Menu. Soon as I switched the player controller and pawn out everything looks the same. Thanks Andrew. I've contacted the creator for support.
