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"

Black Edges when using Distance Field Shadows

Only when using Distance Field Shadows on my directional light do I get this:

alt text

The black edges seem only to show up when facing a close object on the side of the shadow. This only happens when using Distance Field Shadows on a directional light, and only happens in this version of UE4.

Product Version: UE 4.20

Edit: The black edges appear everywhere, not only on the sides of shadows.

Are you using a forward renderer?

I was when I first noticed the problem, however after disabling forward rendering the problem persisted.
