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"

What kind of spline is a spline component?

Hi, I'm trying to make a spline camera and I'm trying to find the closest point on the spline to the player. I believe I'd need to know what kind of spline (Catmul Rom, Bezier, etc...) it is before I can do that. Thanks!

I did some research and it seems that the spline components are Catmull-Rom splines. If someone can confirm that would be cool.

Yeah some documentation and examples would be nice.

Cubic Hermite spline.

FInterpCurve class has method InaccurateFindNearest

Look on InterpCurve.h

      * Find the nearest point on spline to the given point.
      * @param PointInSpace - the given point
      * @param OutDistanceSq - output - the squared distance between the given point and the closest found point.
      * @return The key (the 't' parameter) of the nearest point. 
     float InaccurateFindNearest( const T &PointInSpace, float& OutDistanceSq ) const;
