Issue ID




Objects lit by lightprobes do not match lighting on static lightmapped objects

Global Illumination



Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 0Severity not yet defined

To reproduce:
1. Open attached project
2. Open the scene "Light Probes"
3. Bake lights
4. Observe that the static object is darker than the non-static one.
This happens both with linear and gamma, and both in forward and deferred modes.

Note: This behavior is even more visible in 5.2.4f1 and 5.1.4f1, but that is probably expected due to case 672202

    Tested in 5.3.5p3, and there's still issues with the testcase. Lightprobes get a bright spot in the opposite direction of the light.

    I hope this gets fixed in 5.4... there should be no visible disparity in scenes using light probes...

    Does anyone know how to access lightprobe data? I would love to actually use some competently programmed programs to bake lightprobes externally.

    Same problem in 5.3.3f... Objects using light probes are too bright on the scene.

    I have same problem in 5.3.2f1. Light probes that receive direct-lights has strange dark spot and contrasts. But probes with indirect-lights (ambient from skybox, etc) are just fine.
    This was just fine in 5.3.1f1, but problem has roll backed 5.3.2f1 !!
