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"

Skylight has stopped working in 4.20.2


i started a project yesterday in version 4.20. i set up a scene with lighting to render my character. before i closed the project for the day i had no issues. Today however, when i opened the scene, everything was as i left it. Until I slightly increased the intensity of the skylight. Instead of getting brighter, it stopped emitting light to the scene altogether. Playing with the intensity had 0 effect.

I played with the settings for a bit to no success. I then tried to make a new scene to see if it would work there but nope still not working. I then created a new project, new empty scene, placed a box down, then the skylight. the skylight still emits 0 light regardless of its settings.

So I can no longer use the skylight in any project. this is baffling for me.

Product Version: UE 4.20

I've been having the same problem for hours, the Skylight worked for a little while but then stopped working. Adjusting the intensity and angle suddenly no longer had any effect. Even after starting a new project Skylight still does nothing. At least now I can drop the issue since it's not just me.
