Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Packaging sound visualization problem

The editor works fine getting spectrum data from soundwave. I test it by getting one of the element in spectrum array data and it prints out correctly running on editor. After done packaging file, open up the application, the value return 0. So I guess the problem is at the sound visualization plugin part, the build is successful with no any error tho. Please help thx =]

Anyone? Recently I've also tried making this movie in matinee but it seems like getting the same problem. I create a bool to start the music by setting the value to true at Event begin play in level blueprint. However when I play the movie in matinee (AVI format), there's no sound played (AudioComponent in AudioSpectrum BP) and the value I trace return 0. Testing on Editor "Play" and "Simulate" work perfectly though.

If you look at the source code (SoundVisualizationStatics.cpp), you see that this option is only supported in the editor. I am looking into this myself. Also see this thread:

The thing is that the editor loads the sound as raw wav files, while a deployed game uses some kind of compressed format (ogg?), so only in the editor can the wav file be extracted. I have made code that uses Windows Media Foundation to load files and do Fourier transforms on.

So do you mean the compressed sound format is not supported for this plugin? If so maybe there's some compression settings can be changed on build.
