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"

Paper 2D Sprite has a slightly different color

Hello everyone,

I just made a Paper 2D sprite out of a spritesheet and put it in the scene.
The thing is it has a slightly different color in the scene. Paper 2D Sprite in Scene

The Texture settings are:
Compression Settings: UserInterface2D (RGBA)
Mip Gen Settings: NoMipmaps
Filter: Nearest
Never Stream: On

It's not the light (rebuilt it).
I tried changing the filter but it's not causing it, also I need it without antialiasing.
Then I thought it looked a bit desaturated so I played around with the adjustments but it couldn't fix it.
Then I thought it looked like the green channel was a bit higher so I tried adjusting it in the material but it didn't fix it either.
Also I tried not multiplying the texture with the vertex color but same result.
Then I took it into photoshop and checked out how the colors were changed but I couldn't find a pattern, sometimes the Hue goes up, sometimes down, same goes with saturation and brightness.

So if anyone has an idea or knows the solution I'd be very thankful.

EDIT: Sorry this is a duplicate https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/779987/paper-2d-color-doesnt-match-between-editor-and-pla.html?sort=oldest but it's also unanswered.

EDIT: Ok I'm still a noob, so I didnt' know that I just had to change it to Unlit, so the Lighting has no effect.

EDIT: So now it has a slightly brighter color.

EDIT: The brightening seems to appear at the sprite itself.

EDIT(hopefully last one): So I compared the Texture preview with the sprite preview and the source image. It appears that the Texture is actually darker than the source image and the sprite has almost the same color as the source image, with slight variations of 1 in the R, G or B channels. So, I hope the problem is solved for now.

EDIT: Ok the issue is totally not solved yet. Problem is you can change the viewmode to Unlit so the sprite displays correctly, but I want to have Unlit Sprites and Lit Objects too. Now the Material shading on Unlit does not truely set it to be unaffected by lights.
