Poor scene capture quality in UMG widget

Hello,

I’m having some trouble getting a SceneCaptureComponent2D to render cleanly to a UMG widget - the end result is extremely low quality, has aliasing issues, and doesn’t seem to capture any of the emissive lighting from the actor.

Here’s the actor in 3D space (screenshot 1) and the actor in the UMG widget (screenshot 2):

actor_3d_space

And a side-by-side comparison:

side_by_side

You can see just how drastic the difference is.

Here’s the material for the render target:

Creating the render target and spawning the actor that owns the scene capture component:

Linking the render target and the scene capture component on spawn:

setting_texture_target

Setting the brush material in the UMG widget:

Binding the brush to our variable in the Border component:

I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but I’ve checked everything I can think of - I have no clue why the quality in the UMG widget is so low. This guy seems to have had the same issue, and he solved it, but I really don’t know what he meant in his “I found solution” message: Low quality in UMG - #4 by progy85

Thanks!
