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"

UReflectionCaptureComponent causing hitches on RenderThread when streaming levels


We are loading a bunch of streaming levels in order to create a procedural world. The async loading is working fine for the most part, the game runs at a steady framerate... except for an occasional hitch on the render thread. I've dug into this and it seems to be that all the reflection components are updated in one frame - GameEngine tick calls into ReflectionCaptureComponent::UpdateReflectionCaptureContents, which updates all new reflection capture components. What's the best way to get rid of this hitch?

Here's a quick screenshot of a profiling dump from one of these hitches (from a development build, but the same hitches show in a shipping build):
