Scenecapture not just dark; it's completely unusable.
A while ago I implemented a 3D ingame menu in my game, which worked well. I used a scenecapture texture for one of the textures in the ingame menu, so I could get a smooth transition between game and menu. The capture was a bit on the dark side, but nothing that I couldn't solve with some animation. If I remember correctly, this was when I was working in 4.16.
Since, I have updated to 4.18 and when returning to the same functionality today, I found that it become completely unusable due to the capture being so dark it may as well have given me a black texture. For reference; below is the current result. The upper image shows the game without scene capture. The lower shows the player camera being captured and rendered into a userwidget.
As for the settings; this is what I have used;
Scene Capture Component (all other settings are default)
Scene Capture Texture
I should note that I already tried out some other settings. In the capture component at least, I have tried everything, but everything just returns an image that is way WAAAAAY darker than it should be. Anything I am doing wrong here? I know that the scene capture always captures stuff a bit darker than what we see, but this is way too extreme. I really need the scene capture and this way I just cannot use it.
