EyeAdaptationQuality on 4.22 is dark


We’ve recently made a switch to a new bug reporting method using a more structured form. Please visit the link below for more details and report the issue using the new Bug Submission Form. Feel free to continue to use this thread for community discussion around the issue.



In UE4.22 when r.EyeAdaptationQuality is set to any setting other than 0 the render becomes quite dark. This issue wasn’t present in earlier builds of the engine. Our high quality graphics settings were setting r.EyeAdaptationQuality to 2, and our low settings were setting it to 0 (to mimic sg.PostProcessQuality).

The project has been recently upgraded to 4.22 from 4.20, a new project was created and content was migrated across, it was not converted in place.

The image below should help demonstrate the issue.
