Saber: Weird Artifacts

Postby rzanerutledge on 06/13/2019, 12:43 pm

I've noticed some strange artifacts when your beam Start Size or End Size is above a certain size. These mostly show up when you increase the exposure or gamma on the comp so you can see further into the blacks, but they are visible regardless. (Depending on the codec you render to.) They are not easily filtered or clipped to black.

Here's an image and the same image at an exposure of +5. Note that depending on the way your beam moves, these artifacts appear in different places around the beam.

I am happy to supply VC with a sample project that produces this effect if it helps debugging.

Thanks,
