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"

Is there a way to enable global illumination for point lights

I'm using ue4 as a render in place of vray. So I don't care about performance.

Overall I am very happy with the look ue4 shows me, but in order to light my scene correctly I used several point lights. The only part that bothers me is at the edge of the screen things get dark because ue4 only renders in-screen reflections.

I added a skylight and that helped a little, but if I turn it up too much it washes out the point lights.

Is there a way to add global illumination to point lights when rendering? Would planar reflections help with this?

Product Version: UE 4.20
