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"

Shadows become blurry after building lighting

When I don't build my lighting, the shadows look great. When I do, they look all blurry and strange. I'm extremely new to UE4, but any idea how to fix this?

How can I fix this?

Thats not the correct Solution if you still want to have the benefits of Baked Lights. You just changed it to use Dynamic Lighting =) Study a bit more.
