Camera Issues in 4.7.5
Hello Everyone, I have run into a small issue with my initial camera rotation. If I setup the camera looking a normal way, it is completely inverted and will not show. To get my camera looking straight out of my car, I had to rotate it 90 degrees facing the ground. I have included a picture with the skeletal mesh on the left monitor and the game from my right monitor. Any help on this weird rotation would be greatly appreciated!

I had a similar issue and it was because of the skeleton root. Don't know why the camera takes the root transform, so to fix it you can check your root or a quick solution go to your camera -> Sockets -> Parent Socket ( and select the root element (in my case the car body) ) after that, the camera should move to the root position and now you can move it in the viewport. Hope is enough clear and works.

Try deleting your camera actor and adding a new one, and be sure the 'Transform' is set to 'Relative'. A good way to troubleshoot this issue would be to have a look at the vehicle blueprint of the 'Advanced Vehicle' template. I am assuming this is the project template you are working within already, so that would be a good place to reverse engineer to see where your blueprint differs from the default vehicle blueprint.
Use the image below as a reference for places to check where your camera rotation could be getting overridden or changed.
I have highlighted areas of importance which can affect rotation of your camera. Let me know if you figure out the solution or if you need further assistance.

This may be too late but for others who are facing a similar problem and came to this post like me, it's a simple problem that can easily be solved.
Chances are you may have rotated your model to face the correct orientation in your modelling program but may have a disoriented pivot. For me, I'm using 3ds max and sometimes I model in different viewports (ie. created a cylinder in one view, then rotating the polygon later inside Edit Poly to face another direction) so you need to make sure that: 1) Your model is facing the correct axis (X - forward etc...) 2) Go to 'Hierarchy' tab and select 'Affect Pivot Only' and check your pivot's orientation making sure it's the same as your model's orientation
I don't use Maya or other software so sorry if this isn't helping.
