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"

Lag after switching folders

Unreal Engine 4.15.1 Version: 4.15.1-3348071+++UE4+Release-4.15 I get horrible lag after looking through folders in engine, so much that it is unusable. The only way to fix it is to exit and relaunch the engine. Specs: R9 Fury X, FX-8350, 12GB DDR3, Windows 10 1607/OS Build 15025.1000

Product Version: UE 4.15

Hello NCS_McCallihan,

I'm assuming that you're talking about folders in the Content Browser? If so, when you mention "looking through", do you mean actually clicking the folders and loading the content inside of them or do you just mean expanding them to show the subfolders underneath? Does this also occur with empty folders or does it require there to be multiple assets inside of it? Since you mention exiting the engine fixes the issue, does this happen after a set amount of time or after opening a certain folder or a certain number of folders? As many details as you can provide would be helpful to look into this.

Apparently my comment didnt go through before. It only happens when it loads items in the folder, usually opening a single folder will drop around 10 frames/per folder. This is for both showing subfolders and content in those folders.

This could be related to the Real-time Thumbnails, can you try opening the "View Options" at the bottom right of the Content Browser and unchecking the "Real-Time Thumbnails" option? This will stop the thumbnails from updating every frame to match what is in the viewport in those particular assets. It's been reported to be a performance hit for some users.
