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"

  • always build your light after you have moved it

  • set the mode of the light to moveable (light source)

btw, I have replied to your post in the forum ;) https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?22907-Light-Rendering-Issues&p=103978#post103978

I now have the problem that it casts a shadow jagged at the top and no shadow at the bottom where a shadow should be :-(

Could you probably post a picture of the problem? :) Here is how it looks like when I set the mode in my source light to moveable: alt text
