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"

Oculus Go - ExposureCompensation (post process) not working?

According to this page, you should be able to control to the exposure on GearVR (GO).https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Platforms/GearVR/BestPractices

For a project with an interior and exterior on the GO I really would like to control the Exposure Compensation. I added two volumes but the exposure settings don't seem to have any effect. Any suggestions?

Easily tested by creating a simple scene with two PostProcessVolumes; One PPV unbound - priority 0 + ExposureCompensation 0. And another PPV with priority 2 and ExposureCompensation 2

Product Version: UE 4.19

It should work. However it has been broken since Unreal 4.19 after it changed name from Exposure Bias to Exposure Compensation :/

Actually, to get this to work mobile HDR must be enabled. If you can't afford the fps drop that comes with mobile HDR - maybe just add some extra lights inside and delete the PPV volumes altogether.

It's a bug. Exposure Compensation should work even with Mobile HDR turned off. That's what the documentation here states: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Platforms/GearVR/BestPractices And here: https://static.docs.arm.com/100959/0100/arm_guide_for_unreal_engine_4_optimizing_mobile_gaming_graphics_100959_0100_00_en.pdf

And last but not least, it's even in the MobileBasePassPixelShader.usf

         // MobileHDR applies PreExposure in tonemapper
         OutColor.rgb *= ResolvedView.PreExposure;

PreExposure is applied in the tonemapper IF and only IF MobileHDR is turned on. IF it's NOT then it's multiplied in the PixelShader, which is the bit of code I've posted above. The specific bug is that the Exposure Compensation is not properly going through PreExposure and seems to be constantly at 1.0.
