Usage notice & tips
The Unreal Studio Lighting Pro can be used without the new ray-tracing features.
However they are build around them, so in case you decide to used them with incompatible hardware (non RTX capable graphics card) or unsupported software (older OS or Direct X version) performance and/or quality deviations are to be expected. All blueprints, textures and any other features from this product have been tested on both 4.26 and 4.25 versions of Unreal Engine.
This light is using playlists which are fed with a media texture so that the custom video files could be read and used as a source for UE4’s own Rect Lights. While it was substantially tested, this could still produce some unpredictable results, most commonly a difference between the starting point in the animation you see in the editor and in your final, rendered out sequence. That’s mainly due to the nature how UE4 handles in editor animations
and their final playback rate. In case you need or want to experiment with that, there is a dedicated node for that in the actual Blueprint. Please note that you might need different values for the different engine versions, i.e. a value in 4.26 won’t necessarily translate to the exact same rendered out result in 4.25 or earlier versions.
All that being said, the Live Softbox is very much an ongoing project and will keep on improving.
