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"

[Question]Post Process - Global Illumination

It's seems like the Global Illumination settings from Post Process now works with "Force No precomputed lighting" checked. It's great change it actually allow to get reflections inside fully dynamic light environment. It wasn't metioned in Patch Notes I think.

My question is, are there more settings to it that are hidden or it is just first try on refletions with dynamic lighting ?

Can you confirm that it's the Reflection Environment you're seeing working with precomputed lighting disabled, or is it just the ambient cubemap? The reflection environment (which is reflections from the sphere reflection captures you place) should not work with precomputed lighting disabled.

Yes. Here are steps:

  1. Create new map from template (default)

  2. Change stationary directional light to movable.

  3. Rebuild lighting.

  4. In world properties check force no precomputed lighting..

  5. Rebuild lighting again.

  6. GI is gone, but if GI in post process is set to value above 0, reflections are still in place.

Even if that is bug, I can't complain I dislike it, because that's the thing I really liked to see (;.
