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"

Is it possible to get Live Webcam feed into Unreal?

Hey guys n girls Is it possible to get Live Webcam feed into the Unreal Editor so for example I load up my game and in the background or something on a monitor there is a live feed from my webcam? If anyone knows a way of doing this that would be great! Would prefer if it is in Blueprint but if there is a C++ way I will accept that answer as well! Thanks in advance guys! Raiden58237

I arrived here via google with the same question. Epic needs to implement the webcam feed thing, it's going to be a major dealbreaker in VR if this isn't supported soon.

You need to implement the camera feed yourself through C++ programming I'm afraid and I don't know how to do that. Sorry dude.

UE4 does not support camera feed as i know which is very platform depend thing, you would need add support yourself via C++, but you would need to do that for each platform you support or else you use some library that do that for you. There also might be UE4 plugin already for that if you search.
