I have a large landscape, around 5km x 5km filled with tall redwood trees and lots of static meshes, (like a forest city), when I try to generate clusters for the HLOD, it gets to around 95% them my pc runs out of memory(GTX1060, 24g RAM), and unreal closes. I'm using dynamic lighting so have zero lightmaps plus I have zero other apps running. I did a test and removed about 2/3 of my level (some landscape, trees, and houses) and it was just as slow but didn't run out of memory. so my question is is there a mesh… Read more »

God this was a boring talk… Pro tip: insert a joke or something every once in a while.

Thanks for posting this Unreal and Gnomon. This sems like very technical stuff for artists though (being recorded at Gnomon). I haven't watched the whole thing yet but does anyone know if he covers using the engine as an offline renderer at all? Everything I've watched so far seems tailored towards optimizing for high fps for gaming. Obviously it's a game engine and Unreal develop it with that in mind but there are hundreds of thousands of animators out there dying for an accessible and fast PBR rendering tool they can use in production. Being one of those animators, real-time… Read more »

I didn't understand the answer to the question about how lightmaps get treated with instanced static meshes. Does each instance gets it's own and if so what is the performance impact?

Why you delete auto generated subtitles?

They are useless. Especially for foreign accents dealing with technical stuff.They'll misquote about 50-80% of the words, enough to take you out of the learning process.

No worries. It was literally the first google search I did, for "ue4 how to see draw calls"…You should do a basic search before asking for stuff. Chances are someone else had the same problem. Cheers.
