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"

Cubemap Rendering Edge Artifacts (Postprocess inconsistencies?)

Hi again!

It has come to my attention that in some scenarios the Cubemap capture component produces artifacts.

It looks a bit like the different sides of the cube have different eye adaption values or something like that. But even when deactivating most post processes I was unable to find the culprit.

I saw this happening rather inconsistently among different projects.

Cubemap Artifact

To reproduce: 1. Download the Infiltrator Demo and open it in 4.16

  1. Create a cube render target with maximum resolution

  2. Create a cube capture blueprint that follows the player camera and captures when you hit space (Or however you like)

  3. Capture a few Cubemaps while the robot outside attacks the Infiltrator (best with flashing lights)

  4. Inspect the Cubemaps

  5. Find seams in some Cubemaps

Cheers Jannes

Product Version: UE 4.16

Hey Jannes-

If possible, could you elaborate on your steps? For example, can you provide a screenshot of your blueprint setup? Additionally, what do you mean by "maximum resolution" in your first step? Please provide as much detail as possible to help me reproduce the behavior you're seeing on my end.

Hi Doug!

I can do that. So I attached some screenshots on how to reproduce this reliably.

  • Create and open the Infiltrator Project with the latest engine version (4.16.1)

  • Create a cube render target (default settings are fine)

  • Create a cube capture actor in the scene (default settings are fine)

  • Set the Matinee Actor to force start at 180 seconds (See attached images)

  • Set the transform of the cube capture actor to one of the ones in the screenshots

  • Open your render target in a separate tab so you can see it

  • Click Play in Editor

  • Pause after a few seconds

  • Frame step until the Matinee Sequence time matches the time of the screenshot you choose.

  • You should be able to see similar artifacts as in the screenshots

  • If not move the capture actor around a bit (It seems to happen a lot when particles overlap the cube sides)

I hope this helps!
