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"

Emissive color is washed out

I'm experimenting with cel-shading, and to get manual control over the color I'm adjusting the emissive color. However, the resulting color is washed out, and it's very noticeable on certain colors. This occurs on both "Unlit" and "Default Lit" shading model settings.

The expected color can be see when the viewport is "Unlit", but it is washed out in "Lit". The effect can be seen in the material editor viewport (I also tried setting the 4vector alpha to 1.0, it didn't have any effect):


Is there a way to fix this, or an alternative way to control the final color for cel-shading?

I'm noticing a similar issue. I've just upgraded to 4.16, wasn't seeing this issue in 4.14, could be a 4.15 thing that I missed in between versions.

Any idea what's going on here? I read the links above but I'm not doing any kind of tonemapping that I know of.

The tonemapping is on by default. That third link is about the changes made to the default tonemapper in 4.15, so that could be your issue. The comments there talk about the issue and how to adjust it or get better results with it. I've disabled it completely in mine for now so I haven't experimented with any of the modifications.
