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"

Pointlights have problem with axies and shadow. 4.19.1

alt text Pointlight have really big problem. When I use Source length 50-200-300-500 units, rotate by Y, or X - bake lights always wrong.

To reproduce that bug: 1. Create empty level. 2. Create flat surface. 3. Create pointlight close to surface - set static + set source lenght over 200. 4.1. New rotate (from start position) lamp along X to 90 degrees. Bake. 4.2. New rotate (from start position) lamp along Y to 90 degrees. Bake.

In 4.1 we will get strange point of shadow on surface. In 4.2 we will get wrong bake light axis.

Please, help me. We are small team in 6 members. And in all projects we all have that problem +//-(

I Found problem UE-56344 But there is no information about spot of shadow, if we rotate lamp only along Y.

Product Version: UE 4.19

As a temporary fix: Set the rotation of the pointlights with 'Set...Rotation' in BP (ConstructionScript if the pointlight is a component)...;)
