4.1 - Falloff Exponent

An overview of the Lighting example level, example 4.1: Falloff Exponent


4.1 - Falloff Exponent

This example illustrates the use of a Falloff Exponent to control the falloff of a light. Falloff is defined as the rate at which light loses its energy as it travels away from its source. When not using Inverse Square Falloff, which is described in Example 4.2, this number is used as an exponent, providing Exponential Falloff. Exponential Falloff can often get close to realism, but will generally be best for stylized visuals.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
