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"

Blur UMG Not working on Android

Hi there, I have been trying to add blur component to my umg. It works really cool on desktop, editor preview, Open GL ES2.0 previiew, Open GL ES3.0 preview.

But the blur doesnot work on real android device, it renders transparent . The android device which I m using is ONE PLUS 6 and I m using OPENGL ES3.0 build. It renders fine on mobile preview inside editor with both OPENGL 2.0 and 3.0. I believe that there is a trick which only EPIC guys know and they don't want to reveal to general public.

I have tried for 3 days to get it working but no luck at all.

If someone knows how to get it working please help me out. I don't have any hope of getting any answer from EPIC.

Product Version: UE 4.20

I wonder if that effect requires Mobile HDR. Check your project settings and make sure Mobile HDR is turned on, click the green Restart button, and then try building to your Android device again from there and let me know if that helps. I'm just guessing because I know a lot of rendering features don't work without Mobile HDR enabled. Turning it off gives you faster performance and you might especially want it off for things like Paper2D projects where you don't need it in general, though. But a lot of things don't work with it on.

Also check your project settings: Target Hardward setting. Changing the Maximum/Scalable and Mobile/Desktop buttons there will give you a list of features that will be turned on/off with the new setting.

Thanks mate for quick response. The Mobile HDR is enabled. But in target hardware, its showing Motion Blur is disabled, is it the blur which is used in UMG.

No, I am fairly sure that motion blur is only a post-process effect for objects moving in world space, not the UMG blur effect. Have you seen the UMG blur used on other mobile projects? If not, maybe it's not supported for mobile?

avatar image ANURAGX Oct 04 '18 at 04:58 PM

If UMG blur is not supported on mobile devices, then the blur should not work on mobile preview as well, but in mobile preview blur is working upon launch on android device (One Plus 6 ) it renders transparent. And also there is no official doc which states that blur is not supported on mobile.

avatar image mightyenigma Oct 04 '18 at 10:20 PM

Well I'm stumped. I thought I saw something in the official docs about which platforms support it, but I don't remember what it said.

I can reproduce this. Have you filed a bug report?

But I dont see it being resolved as of now, and Its target fix is 4.22

@Anuragx It seems that the bug report contains a typo, I think it should say Results: Background blur from the UMG Widget **does not** appear

It's not working at all. I m the one who reported this bug and I have been till now, I m checking daily whether it's fixed or not.

You can design your UI and check in mobile preview and once it's fixed then you could check in real Android device.

I tried to contact epic engineer and asked the context many times to that I could myself fix the issue, by they dont listen at all.

The target fix is 4.23, till then wait.

If you can use any kind of post process at all on mobile, then you may be able to create the effect yourself. But that's the question: Is any post process available for mobile?

avatar image ANURAGX 6 hours ago

Sorry to say this, but this is not going to get fixed in 4.23. Check here https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-65007 Its backlogged now and no one knows when it will be fixed. I think my grand children will be able to use this feature hopefully (I m optimistic about this).

If you have change migrate to Unity or Cry or lumberyard, at least they listen and give context for the problem, but these epic engineers are busy with fest.

avatar image Cervelx 4 hours ago

No problem, I think I'll switch to Unity for a variety of other reasons, for the mobile Unity is the top
