emissive material on static mesh does not emit light

Hey there,

i’ve modified the green wobble material. see screenshot

I’ve created a BSP mesh and converted it to a static mesh, see combined view (lit and lighting only)

As you can see, there is no light emitted. to double check my material i’ve created a BSP sphere:

You can see that it does emit light. Did i do anything wrong? My static mesh is set to use emissive for static lighting.

Any hint?

Best regards,
Manuel

Hi!

I think color intensity is very low. Try to change your multiplying from 0.2 to 2 or higher.

Hello Kriech0r,

Thank you for the post. to expand on what svv3dUDN said I have included a couple of images.

The first shows which node needs to be modified in order to increase or decrease the amount of emmisive light from the material.

The second shows a comparison of three different values in that field. The far left material is set up the way that you have yours, in which I multiply by .2. The second has the multiply value changed to 1 to simulate no changes being made to the emmisive light value. The far right material has the multiply value set at 15. You can see that by comparison, multiplying the value by .2 (or 2/10 in fraction form) actually divides the emissive output making the material appear less bright than the original value. Using a positive number for this value will give the results that you are looking for.

I hoped that this information was helpful,
