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"

Can see through the wall when close to it

Hi. I've just stared using UE4 and faced a problem:

I created Third Person Template and changed my camera to this: Camera

So it looks firstperson-like, but when I get close to wall I can see through it:


I tried to create new project and keep "Camera Boom" but nothing changed.

Hi! I know it is a very old post but I am running into the same problem and increasing the size of the capsule is not helping. The geometry I am using for my level (walls) is imported from Sketchup. Whenever I pan or turn using my HTC HMD it clips through it and the whole world turns inside out. Please help asap! thanks!

I ended up with increasing size of Character's Capsule. (88 -> 100, 34 -> 55).

That's one way to do it. The reason you're seeing through the wall is that the camera was able to get close enough to "clip" through the geometry.
