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"

My Material turns half black?!

I did nothing and since 1 hour my material of this food turns half black. With this pixelated black color. In unlit mode the textures are normal, so I think it is caused by the lighting.. Can anyone help me? The pictures are showing the normal one and the black material!

Make sure you have a Reflection Capture in the area. Static lights need these for reflective surfaces. If your lights are mobile you won't have this problem, but you can't have too many of those in an area without getting errors.

So just add a Cube or Sphere Reflection Capture
