Unreal Engine 4.20 Preview

Shame this keeps getting pushed out: Unreal Engine Issues and Bug Tracker (UE-50092)
Text is kind of useful these days :confused:

Wow, neat. I was not expecting a response that quickly.

Any chance you could take another look at this other bug I reported pertaining to the “old” DOF? I saw it got marked as “Cannot Reproduce,” but I’m pretty sure *someone *at Epic has reproduced it, since the fact that it also affects the 4.21 branch was not something I was aware of, so it must have been added by someone else who was able to see the issue.

The issue is a bit more subtle than I realized – it’s only noticeable in high frequency details *very *close to the camera, but I’ve been able to reproduce it in a fresh project in multiple machines so I’m quite confident it’s a real regression. I can add more detailed steps and/or screenshots if that would help. Thanks again.

looks like static spot light is broken in preview 3…

EDIT: NVM… although im running into problems with skylight. everything looks off.

Can’t enable Tonemapper for Mobile Devices following this (…ProcessEffects) i’v even tried to add " r.tonemapperfilm=1" to DefaultEngine.ini also not working the only way it works is on the editor by this command "".

I was able to repro and fix. Thanks for the bug report!

Amazing, thanks.

I think you need to enable Mobile HDR from project setting :))

Mobile HDR was enabled by default this problem was there since "" was added to 4.16 i think.

Sorry for this stupid question, I didnt notice that at first post the included those information about what is fixed in final release 4.20 and who is could be included also with preview .

However I create a question here hope I may get more information . IVoiceCapture Get data return 0 on android , while capturing state is OK - UE4 AnswerHub

REMEMBER: Please report any new bugs you find by following the How To Report a Bug Guide

Epic going ham on them bugs. Is this the effect of Fortnite success and the experience from developing it?
Either way its awesome.

Can you confirm the UE4.20 will only run on MacOS 10.13+, and thus ditching the 10.12 support for future version of UE4?

Please have as many previews as you need to fix all the bugs! Awesome job so far though!

Am I the only one having weird artefacts with the new DOF ? (screenshot done with the last preview)

I’ve only gotten these if you have a very narrow DOF, suggesting that the blur is just way too strong. Have you tried adjusting the blade count? Also you can reduce the DOF by setting the max f/stop in your lens setting, which changes it to “Custom”, but allows you to go beyond what the lens is locked at(usually the max is f/22)… assuming this is with the Cine Camera…

First issue: what quality settings it that? I just fixed an issue like this yesterday. I’ll investigate.

Second issue, is known a limitation of the algorithm for foreground when it have large variety of foreground Circle of Confusion. There is ideas on how to fix that, but doable in the timeframe? Work around, you can bind your maximum bluring radius independently for the foreground with r.DOF.Kernel.MaxForegroundRadius.

Playing with Niagara instanced mesh render particles, and noticed that one of my 100 particles shows up in VR. For some reason, the particle instancing isn’t showing in VR. Is this a known issue? This is in CPU mode.

When I switch it to GPU mode, the particles show up in only one eye.

Thanks for your reply.
The thing is, even with a “light blur”, I’ve got some of this artefacts :frowning:

Thanks for your reply too :slight_smile:
All screenshot are in Epic quality.
it’s really weird, most of the screenshots / videos I saw did not seem to have any problem.

This sort of issue even on small convolution should not happen, would you be able to share your level with place cameras, as well as resolution settings?

Found that I actually missed preview 4 window, there is 9 DOF fixes that have not made it into the preview 4, but are on latest 4.20 github.
