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"

Dynamic Indoor Lighting - Shadow Banding Artifacts


I’m trying to light an angular indoor environment with dynamic lights, but can’t find a decent way to set it up without running into major self-shadowing artifacts. Changing the shadow bias of my lights can somewhat alleviate the issue, but even a bias of 1 doesn’t get rid of it completely, not to mention that the overall shadow accuracy greatly suffers in return.

Does anyone know how to achieve usable dynamic indoor lighting (in UE4.20 or 4.21)? Is baked lighting the only viable option?
