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"

Distance Field Shadows passing through objects!

Hi all, I encoutered a problem with Distance Field Shadows. All my scene is made by Static Meshes, I made a build and all went right. Lighting is simple: there are some Spotlight on the ceiling, no skylight, no direct.

I introduced another mesh, the one with dark gray metal material. It is a Stationary mesh with Distance Field Shadows enabled. There is one spotlight above, with Stationary property and Distance Field Shadows enabled. All is going well except that the shadow seems to pass through that shelf ! Am I missing some setting? I tried to increase the distance field resolution under the static mesh properties, but nothing is gonna change..

Here you have the screenshots. Thanks in advance for any helping answer!
