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"

Moved mesh but shadow remain

Hi Guys,

Im new to UE4 and starting from the Lakehouse template by ue4 archviz.

I got tons of questions and need your help.

  • Why the shadow of the origin cabinet remains even it is moved? (On wall and floor)

  • Why the new imported OBJ cabinet does not have shadow on wall and floor?

  • Why the moved origin cab is darken?

  • What does it mean by "LIGHTING NEEDS TO REBUILD"?

Many thanks for your time!

Best regards, Leo

The scene is using static lighting, and static lighting bakes lightmaps and shadows for static objects. If you move a static light, or a static object, you need to rebuild lighting to update the light/shadows. Clicking the build button will rebuild lighting(or you can look under the build menu to only build the lighting).
