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"

Why does the stationary skylight produce artifacting/banding?


We have noticed that the stationary sky light produces very different results (in terms of quality) from the static skylight and we would like to know if there's a way to fix this. We have been able to reproduce this problem also in UE 4.15, 4.14, 4.13. We used default lightmass settings for this test. Lightmap compression is turned off for the test.alt text The scene contains one skylight, and one sky sphere. Geometry is BSP (same results with static meshes) with Lightmap res set to 1. Thank you,


Product Version: UE 4.16
