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"

Orthographic camera projection


This might be a silly question, but I was wondering if there is an option to set the camera for orthographic projection. I imagine it is possible because of the flappy bird type game demo'd by Epic during GDC, but I just wanted to confirm.

Also, would there be any "gotchas" to watch out for that are specific to UE4's architecture in regards to making 2D games built out of sprites as textured quads?

Hey rattasak,

You can change a Camera Actor's Projection Mode in the Details panel. With the Camera Actor selected, look for Details > Camera Settings > Projection Mode and choose Orthographic.

Hope that helps!

So Ortho is finally an option in UE? Awesome. This might come in handy when making a 2d projected game but with 3d lighting and 3d world (similar to "Fez" or "In The Shadows" where they actually used Voxel graphics)
