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"

4.15.2 Sphere Reflection Capture Falloff

I am having difficulties with sphere captures in 4.15. There seems to be no falloff on the capture. wherever the Influence Radius is set, it throws a harsh edge on all geo at that based on the sphere. alt text

Has there been major updates to how the sphere captures are working since 4.13? everything seemed to be working fine and still does in the version i had of the file from then.

Product Version: UE 4.15

I have the same issue. It seems there is no way to adjust the falloff. I have converted a level from 4.11 to 4.15 and the way the reflections behave is very different. On first sight i thought it was a point light which makes circular areas brighter but it was the reflection sphere.

Epic team some help is needed over there ! ;)

Many thanks

Yes, exactly! Please a response would be great. In the forums there was mention of having the larger sphere to capture the entire level and smaller radius spheres within, however I have already been using this approach so it would be great to hear about other solutions.

Is anyone looking into this? Is there a work around? I notice that some reflections do fade away, but most do not and I can't figure out why?
