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"

Cast dynamic Shadows with Static Mesh


I have a directional light set to stationary in my scene. All objects are set to static, except my trees which are set to movable, because I want them to cast dynamic shadows.

However, I don't want to use volumetric lightmap to light them (I want the same lighting as the rest), so I set the lightmap type to "force surface". The problem is, when I do that, they don't cast dynamic shadows anymore.

Is there a way to cast dynamic shadows (from a stationary light) on movable objects with "force surface" enabled ? (or something that does the same)
