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"

Skylight casting weird lighting on objects

alt textHi, I am doing an interior scene and some of the objects in scene have weird lighting, one side of these objects is lit up for no reason. it disappears when i switch off the skylight. as you can see in the image the picture frame has washed up light on one side. I have an outer shell geometry for the whole project so it cannot be light leak, the object uvs are fine as well.
