Landscape Black and Blurry?
I'm a completely new Unreal user- I'm following along with Lynda.com's Unreal Engine Essential Training, and unfortunately have reached something of an impass...
I'm learning about applying Landscape materials, and for some reason when I drag the provided course material Landscape into the Landscape Material box in the details window, my landscape turns black and blurry... I'm including pictures to help illustrate what I'm seeing!
One thing I know is that the Training was made for UE 4.10, and I'm using 4.16 - I tried installing 4.17 and am getting the same issue!
The first attached picture is before I add the material, the second picture is after, with the black and blurry result.
If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated! Looking forward to learning this powerful software, but this problem is leaving me completely stuck!

YAY! I think it was the light mass importance volume. It can take 5-10 mine (from my experience) to work.

Try building your game by pressing the "Build" button on the top toolbar.

omg something happened... I don't know what, haha... but the black and blurries is GONE.
I wish I could tell you what happened to help others in the future, but I honestly have no idea what I did. After clicking into the Terrain folder in the Textures folder, screen grabbing and pasting here, when I went back into Unreal, the landscape was there!
Maybe it took a while for the light mass importance volume to have effect? But I didn't see any kind of loading or status bar at the bottom of the screen...
Anywho, thanks for the help everyone! Good to know that if I run into problems, the community is here to help!
