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"

Lighting Static Mesh Info object marked as None

Hey everyone,

I've been doing some Light Bake Test and wanted to optimize my baketime a bit. When I check what takes the most time in baking the statistics show some objects marked as taking a big chunk of the total Lighting Time.

It seems to be literally nothing in my scene so I'd like to know what this is and if and how i can get rid of it ?

Hey afklamer -

Those "Nones" are your BSP Geometry brushes in the level. Each face of the BSP will be called None, so a cube would have 6 Faces each called "None"

Thank You

Eric Ketchum

Hey Eric,

Thanks that kind of makes sense =) Im still a bit confused sicne usually when I click an object I get to se which one in my scene it is, the "nones" dont work like that. Is there a way to identify a none ? I'd love to check some of them out since they seem to take significant amounts of rendertime.

cheers Denis

Unfortunately not directly. However you can use the Lighting Complexity and Shader Complexity visualization settings to narrow down exactly which BSP plane is causing the most problems. Simple change the Lit drop down to Light Complexity and/or Shader Complexity.
