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"

Change light in one section manually?

So I have a scene where there's an underground "crypt" that I wish to have lit with torches. Right now, it's very bright in there, despite all sunlight being blocked off. Is there a way I can create some sort of lightmass volume that changes it to be much darker ambiently once inside, with most light coming from the torches? I tried the lightmass importance volume, but it still left that section quite bright. Thanks in advance!

Hello, I guess what you are looking for is Post process volume. You would probably have to adjust auto-exposure, or completely turn it off.

Try to look through these two links: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Resources/ContentExamples/PostProcessing/


Kind regards, Alex.

I tried adding a post process volume around the crypt and adjusting the min and max brightness to be 5, which made it quite dark. I may adjust it later. I added fire particle effects, and then put point lights where the fire is. It looks quite a bit better now. Thank you for the advice!
