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"

Accessing first person camera in level blueprint

I can access the first person camera in the character's blueprint but not in the level blue print. I am trying to do a ray cast to highlight the selected object. So, I need to get the camera's location and rotation.

Awesome! thanks :-) It worked. I just started using unreal engine. So, pretty confused. Can you suggest me how to go about learning C++ and blueprints in unreal engine 4 (other than the official video tutorials).

there is a book called "Learning C++ by Creating Games With UE4" written by Wiliam Sharif from PACKT publishing

it was so useful for me
