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 lighting using emissive materials


I have a so called 'emitter' that uses LineTrace to spawn a 'Lightray' - now that ray is a pipe like mesh with an emissive material applied to it. I can reflect the ray using some mirrors (game mechanics, irrelevant, but that'd be the main idea of the game).

I have enabled dynamic lighting in the material, got a LPV (LightPropagationVolume), a directional light that injects light into the LPV, and the ray still doesn't light the surroundings no matter where it's spawned / reflected.

Is dynamic lighting using LPV broken in 4.21 or what? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.21
