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"

Object is being lit too bright (4.16)

Well, the title says it all, to be honest!

Look at this image: alt text

Now, the ceiling is fine, but the curtains are way too bright! Thing is, they are both the same material!

Any help?

Yes, you have some nice soft shadows on the ceiling there. A couple of questions about the curtains. Is this happening after you built lighting with them included? If you've moved or modified those meshes in any way your static lighting is going to need to be rebuilt.

If that isn't the case, then maybe your lightmap resolution on the curtains is too low.

Another thing to try is to use the Lighting Only view mode in the Editor. From here, you can see which lights are acting on your curtains and how. There may be a light (directional light?) acting on them from the other side which could indicate an issue with the Normals on your mesh.

I managed to fix it in the end, I changed the mobility to static and that fixed it all!
