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"

Hi Cedric,

Do you have your camera actor attached to a Director Track in your Matinee editor? You will need to Right-click and add a Director track, then put a keyframe in it to attach the camera. Please let me know if that helps.

Cheers!

Eveything is normal.Just close the window when you want the movie to end... and post prod in after effects. The file location should be something like: C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Unreal Projects\Reflections\Saved\VideoCaptures. The play on level option is when you clic the camera associated with the little ''clap'' on the right, on the detail panel.

Can you please explain in detail how I can record a movie from an existing matinee? I tried to render the Reflections_Matinee into a movie, but after clicking start it renders frames nonstop. But to what location? Also the mouse movement changes the camera, which is not what I expect. I cant find "Play on level load".

Opne the scene. Clic on the Matinee logo on the upper panel and choose: refecltion_matinee. In the matinee window click on movie (upper right on top panel). Choose .AVI and resolution. A new window should pop up. Let the animation end and close the window. Go grab your video file to: C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Unreal Projects\Reflections\Saved\VideoCaptures.

The file is set up as if there was an intro video before getting in 1st person or whatever. BUT it also plays in loop....so you will never get in 1st person. To avoid this and film your movements.... you gotta clic on refection_matinee (director clap logo) in the scene outliner (right panel) and delete it...you will then be able to film yourself playing.
