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"

Why does my material look darker when its the same?

Hi all...I'm creating an arch viz project of an interior space. See screenshot below, my problem is even though I have the same material applied to some geometry it gets very different results. Check the architrave (corner of the wall and ceiling), same material as the wall and ceiling but looks very dark, what am I doing wrong? Even the whole wall on the right is very white even though there is a window in the room on the left. All interior walls are 1 piece of geometry with the 1 material applied. I have done a preview and production light build with not much difference, changed the light map resolution and still have this problem. The scene has a sun, skylight, light mass portals, light mass volume, post process and interior lights. Any ideas?

Could you add if you checked your normals on your geometry?
