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"

GPU Profiler question

I'm using the ProfileGPU command, and I want to understand more of what these things mean, mainly:

PosOnlyOpaque Static EBasePassDrawListType=0

As they are the most costly looking things going on. I couldn't find this info anywhere in the documentation, so I unless I missed it somewhere, can anyone help me out on what these mean?

I'm having the same pain points. I don't see anything in the documentation either.

In a level with ~2M tris (15 fps) my PrePass Opaque is 18+ ms, BasePass ListType=0 is 21+ ms.

In a similar level with only 112K tris (119 fps), the PrePass Opaque is 1.36 ms, and BasePass ListType=0 is 1.32 ms.

From my comparison, it seems that these numbers are related to the rendering of triangles. Keep in mind, a different pair of levels, with a smaller difference in tris (105K tris vs. 305K tris), have similar PrePass and BasePass numbers.

Check your tris with [stat rhi]
