Hi there, my skeletal mesh character seems to be lit much darker than the environment under a static or stationary light if shadows are turned on.
For NDA reasons I can’t actually show the character model but it seems to happen to every skeletal mesh so I made a test character. We’ll call him steve for now.
As you can see steve is standing directly underneath a stationary light source, yet he is very dark.
Here he is under a movable light source and it looks just fine.
Both Steve and the character that shares this issue have proper physics assets.
The lighting seems to work properly at a certain distance but as soon as you move them close it breaks https://i.gyazo.com/9251d34c714dfdc1604c3fbc56a0b61f.mp4
Turning off shadows also seems to fix the issue
but of course that’s not a viable option.
This is a last resort so I really hope someone can help me out, many thanks if ya can :).
