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"

Howto neon-light material with new tonemapper in 4.15?

How can you get some neon light colors like on this image < 4.15: alt text

Instead of somewhat fully different with 4.15: alt text

The emissive colors with the new tonemapper does not look like neon-lights anymore. While this could look better in some cases its now far away from pure colored emissive lights like you would get it on pure colored neon-sign-lights, LED, scifi, fantasy, materials. In the release notes we got informed that the old tonemapper gets removed. How can we migrate to the new one without loosing the possibility to create material that looks like the old (somehow) instead colors that look whashed out towards white.

I would also be very interested in getting a proper fix: many of my weapon fx now look flat and uninteresting.

For my purpose console command r.TonemapperFilm 0 helps a lot and emissive materials looks nearly like before. I also pumped up intensity of emissive color.

Yes I know this workaround. Thanks. However this is no real solution because the old tonemapper should be removed (4.15 release notes): "You can switch the tonemapper back by adding r.TonemapperFilm=0 to the SystemSettings section of your project’s DefaultEngine.ini. We intend to remove the old tonemapper in a future version of the engine." - I hope there is some way to get neon-light back with the new tonemapper somehow?
