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"

Poor dynamic shadows quality of stationary light

Hi! According to official documentation Unreal stationary light source can cast dynamic shadows for movable object like Movable light. But it has too poor shadows quality. Really stationary light have twice lower quality then movable light (mesh with scale 1 in case of stationary light has such shadow as mesh with scale 0.5 and movable light).

Look to this image, equal objects here, with equal settings. Only difference is the Stationary or Movable light mobility. alt text

In the past it was possible to increase shadow quality by scalability settings. But since version 14 there are no control (default settings are maximum), and as the result no possibility to show shadows for small objects.

Is there still some way to fix it and achieve shadows quality for stationary light like movable light (for movable meshes)?
