Effect BUG! Clipping issue caused by the environment occluder

Good afternoon,

In addition to my previously reported issue, I have one more.


Working on a engine fire effect, I noticed that the effect gets clipped in a really bad way for the cockpit view.


Exhibit 1:

Exhibit 2:1646843597334.pngThe same effect from the interior camera. As you can see, some parts of the effect are clipped.

Here's something funny though: when removing the environment occluder (the thing that prevents raindrops from falling inside the aircraft), the effect shows.

Exhibit 3:

It seems as if the environment occluder is increasing the clipping distance for the effect when the camera is inside of it.

I did experiment with some of the camera settings as well, namely the ClipMode and BoundingBoxRadius parameters of the camera definition. Neither changed anything, so this seems to be an issue with the occlusion.
