Make blueprint camera follow empty object
Hello, I'm experimenting with a top-view perspective on a blank project with no starter content.
I made a character blueprint with a camera and added a cube component in front of it. I want the camera to follow the cube instead of the character itself.
I also want the cube to stop whenever there is a collision, and not clip through it, so that the camera also stops.
I'm not very experienced with blueprints, so I'm sorry if this seems like a noobish request. I would really appreciate it if someone points me to the right direction.

You can actually hide or delete the character that's within the character blueprint. By doing this, you'll still have the collision capsule and the camera will still be following a 'character'. I tested this out in the Top Down Template. You can always create a new character blueprint as well and set it up with only a collision capsule and attach the camera to it that way too, but it's likely less work for you to just modify what's in the template.
If you have any further questions, please let us know. Have a great day!
