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"

Disable Volumetric Lightmap

Is there a way to remove the Volumetric Lightmap?

I'm having moveable actors in my scene, and the volumetric lightmaps ignores it making these actors light up from inside (their shadows have no affect anymore).

I don't need the volumetric lightmap and would just like to have my moveable actors to not be affected by lightmap (my light is stationary btw).

Hi! How turn off volumetric lightmap for individual affected objects?

Thanks !

I think there may be an option on the object itself if you go to the extended options, otherwise i'm not sure.

"Fixed" it by dissabling all volumetric settings, and rebaking my entire level.

How did you do that? Which settings do you mean? All I could find was some settings in World Settings.alt text

it's been a while since I did this. I think you should dissable all volumetric lighting, that is enabled on your lights and fog etc.

and then just rebake the level.

you can also force the engine to dissable baked lighting, and go for dynamic lighting.
