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 to Disable Translucency Volume/Lighting?

I can not disable translucency volume lighting, filtering etc..

I checked my all translucent materials are "nonLit", and all light's "Affect Translucent Lighting" are unchecked But "profile GPU" show that translucency volume rendering is ON. Would you tell me how to disable translucency volume? alt text

"Affect Translucent Lighting" on the light just prevents their injection, there's still come constant cost from clearing and filtering the volume.

You can disable it with the console command 'r.TranslucentLightingVolume 0', or lower the resolution with 'r.TranslucencyLightingVolumeDim 32'. These can be overridden in your game's DefaultEngine.ini (SystemSettings section) to apply them on load.

Props to you for using profilegpu to narrow down the costs.

I didn't know "r.TranslucentLightingVolume 0". I used this command, so in profilegpu, there are not translucent cleaning and filtering.
