Emmisive materials not showing? (while playtesting in editor)

Hi, thanks for your help! :smiley:

Emmisive materials don’t seem to render properly when I test things out in the editor / launch the game. They are emmisive, though, and they are shown to be glowing when they’re applied to a material anywhere else.

What setting could be causing this?


can you show us your material?

I’m not at home right now, so I can’t at the moment, but I tried with various materials.

It happens with every emmisive material. I migrated some from the Content Examples that work fine if I render them in the content examples project, but the emission doesn’t work in my game. Are there any files I could upload here that could help you guys help me? (XD)

Hey paragonx9,

If you are attempting to get the emissive property of your material really bright you need to multiply it by a constant value. Try this approach to see if you can get your emissive to shine a bit brighter!

Basic Emissive

Multiplied Emissive

Let me know if this worked for you, or if you need some more assistance.


I already did this, thanks. The glow doesn’t show at all
