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 the Viewport Simulation Camera Rotation capped?

I downloaded the latest version of the UE4 off git (release branch).

I then compiled the project and created a UE4 game project from the Top-Down project template.

When navigating the level with the view-port camera everything works fine.

When clicking play and ejecting from the pawn I can fly around in free-fly mode with the view-port camera still. However, there is an issue with the rotation.

The exact behavior is while holding right click I can rotate X degrees away from where I first pressed right click. X Appears to be about 45 degrees.

If I turn until the limit, release right click, hold right click, I can continue turning another 45 degrees.

To do a 180 I have to repeat this 4 times...

How can I turn this off?

Still having this problem in 4.8 preview 2. Did you find an option to turn it off anywhere? This gets pretty annoying because camera is acting different depending if you are "ejected" while simulating or playing or normally editing. I'm pretty sure it wasn't like this in 4.3 or earlier versions. It started happening with some update.

If in Player Controller "Show Mouse Cursor" option is enabled, it seems to clamp ejected camera movement to the viewport window. I'm not sure if this is working as intended or a bug.
