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"

Using GPU for lighting?

I'm trying to build lighting for my scene and after one hour its at 4%. The process alone is using up 70%+ of my I5-6600k and 12gb (out of 16) of ram. Only 3% of my GPU is being used at the moment while the rest of my system is overloaded. Is there any way to build lighting off the GPU? ... or both?

I found this forum thread about the topic. TL;DR For most users, GPU solutions for light building are not practical due to memory limitations (transfer rate as well as capacity), so Unreal uses a CPU algorithm.

There's also a networked server farm available for light building. You might want to make sure that's enabled. Otherwise, I'm going to guess something in your level is causing a bottleneck.
