Lights blocked off in a certain direction
I'm very new to UE, and I'm finding some problems with adding some lighting as a part of character component.
What I'm seeing is that when I add a light attached to to the root component, the light looks like it's being blocked by something in a certain direction.
I don't have any other geometry in the scene other than the floor and the walls (it's the 3rd person code template), so I'm not sure what is happening.
Does anyone have any suggestions of what could be wrong?
It looks like your lights are working fine. What's causing this lighting issue is the material on your floor. The texture you have plugged in as your Normal is not actually a normal map, and removing it seems to fix the problem.
You might need to look into creating a normal map using a different method than whatever you used the first time. Here's a tutorial I found that mentions a couple different programs that can help you create a normal map from your texture:
Hope that helps!
