UE4.12 Linear Lights with Black Halo

Previously the lights on UE4.11 did not behave the same way. Now the linear lights have a black halo
when placed close to a surface. Attached is the image showing the black circular patch on the wall with a
bright rim light … what have changed and how can I work around this issue on UE4.12?

Hey hawkenfox,

This is a known and reported issue. Take a look at the post below for more information on this bug.

Let me know if you have further questions.


Thanks Andrew. Wasn’t able to find the post previously with the key words I used for the search. Will wait for the patch to be in place before upgrading to 4.12 then. Cheers.
