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"

Static / stationary

I have few question about quality of lights .( i don't want to know about dynamic stuff ) 1: which one gives you more accurate shadow and GI? I test it my self stationary give you clean shadows and more accurate, but with static, its feel you capture more shadows but with many artifacts. 2: I read few PDF and they say dynamic have the highest quality of lighting in UE4 !!! why ?? dynamic doesn't have any GI or bounces photons ?! 3: if you don't have any dynamic object in the scene which one gives you the best quality of lighting?

Thanks .

1 answer: sort voted first

1: Depends on lightmap resolution of the objects. As you increase resolution, at certain point baked shadows become more accurate, then dynamic ones.

2: Again, depends on what you mean under quality. Static lighting does complex light interaction, which would be otherwise prohibitory expensive as dynamic.

3: Static.
