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"

An area of my room gets dark when the camera turns away from it

Hello. I have just started learning Unreal Engine and am having a bit of a problem: the back of the room in my level gets very dark when the camera isn't looking at it. When you do turn the camera there, it slowly lights up

What could be causing this and how can I correct it? For reference, I have a directional light, sky light and atmospheric fog in the scene outside the room and a point light and particle system inside the room. I would appreciate any help given

This is the Auto Exposure from the post process volume. If you dont have a post process volume, place one in your scene (can be set to unbound) and set the auto exposure setting so it fits your needs. But be aware that you will likely have either a dark room OR a bright environment outside if you deactivate it.
