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"

Spotlight Issues in VR

Hi guys,

I have weird issue with spotlights specifically in VR. To give some more details, I have MSAA enabled and all the suggested VR performance adjustments including Forward Render. I have volumetric fog enabled as I want a slight ambiance of fog.

Point lights are operating normally however Spotlights when viewed from most angles appear "duplicated", that is to say, the light source (emission point) appears to be duplicated, visible once in the center of each HMD lense (left/right). From far angles it looks normal but from the center point it appears to be duplicated.

Does anybody have any suggestions on what may be causing this?

Indeed it is, thank you. UE-58981 is precisely the issue, occurs with UE 4.20 and 4.21
