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"

How do I enable bloom and emissive lighting on the world?

I followed a tutorial to create an emissive light, but it doesn't create any light or bloom whatsoever on the world even after baking. I've set the texture to emissive and applied it to a cube. What do I have to do in order to enable these two things? https://vgy.me/TgIQdc.png

Bloom is under post process... Emissive lighting... If you want it to light up an area, you're going to need a lightmass importance volume, a portal and set your Skylight bounces higher than 1 /this controls the emissive light bounces too!) . Build your light! Have you set "Use Emissive for Static Lighting" true on your cube mesh?

Thanks, I actually figured out I didn't have bloom because of a weird bug, wherein after I playtest my project, bloom gets disabled for whatever reason, what could be causing that?
