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"

Build Lighting Extremely long times

So i have created a small project and the building lighting takes extremely long. so long that it looks like its frozen at 2% then at least half an hour later it goes to 3% and so on. Is there any way to fix this problem?

do you have lightmass importance volume in your level ? if not check this out -> https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Rendering/LightingAndShadows/Lightmass/Basics

Another problem might be the lightmap density on your meshes. it should be in between blue and green most of the times. Red means the lightmap is too dense for its size. alt text you can override your lightmap res to experiment with the building times. alt text Once you find the ideal lightmap res for your model, you can change the default setting of your mesh by double clicking your mesh in content browser.

if the scene is too big (like open world) it isnt a good idea to use static lighting.
