    VXGI off when recording matinee

    as the title says it, i dont have gi when recording out.

    not sure, but it may be the case of my camera being very distant.
    i have to crank up the range in the console to 10000. is this value being overridden when rendering a movie?

    speaking of console, i am using vxgi range and hbao enabling which i have to do every time the project loads.
    how can i set my values as default for the project. tried with an ini but i dont think it worked.

    1) Use ConsoleVariables.ini for any cvars you want the engine to include upon each start (it's in \Engine\Config of your VXGI build)
    2) Hmm, I do recall having a similar issue but my memory unfortunately equals the holes in the average termite hill How are you launching your matinee? You could start it from a trigger and also have this trigger output your range in a simple Blueprint.
    Maybe that will do the trick?


      thank you my man,

      i cought your consolevariables.ini tip in the other thread and was just about to try it
      i was testing it with the engine.ini:/



        brilliant. cvariables in the ini fixed both issues.



          btw any idea why or how the PPV settings are handled when recording?
          for instance i have bloom off but it shows when capturing the video via "create a movie" in matinee.

          i have the director group setup and have made frame as per instructions. does the director keyframe happen to retain the PPV values?
