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"

SceneCaptureComponent2D for Scope

Hello! I'm trying to replicate the style of scope found on Escape from Tarkov (related pic below) alt text

I have added a SceneCaptureComponent2D on my PlayerCharacter Blueprint that renders what it captures on a simple plane for testing. alt text

I made a test map to check if and how it works, however I'm faced with the following issue. When facing well-lit areas of the map, the render looks ok. alt text

As I turn towards other areas though, I start getting weird renders: alt text

And at some point, the render goes greenish: alt text

I thought fog would bug the render with shadows but that's not the case. It seems that the whole thing is affected by the Directional Light Actor in the level. Why is this happening and how can I fix it? Also, has anyone encountered any similar problems with other lights?

Thanks in advance!

Are you actually using unlit material for the plane?

i just managed to get rid of the artifacts and the greenish effect by switching the material to translucent. it renders everything now, however i can still see a mild green effect alt text

You should use unlit material for this case.
