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"

How to load screenshots via blueprint?

How do I load screenshots (inside the game folder) via blueprints, for example to use as thumbnails in my own material?

I've found it easy to let the player TAKE a screenshot by executing the "shot" command via a blueprint, but have problems then accessing those files in-game.

Alternatively, if this is not possible; how do I render the entire scene to a texture that can be stored and retrieved on the client? For example, to allow an in-game camera and gallery mode (where the player can take his own photos and later see them in a gallery).

Product Version: UE 4.8

I've faced the same problem recently, but there seem to be no clear way to do so. I couldn't find a way to render the scene to a texture as well.

But I think, there could be one option. You may use the Download image node as it is here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/294553/filesystem-user-can-upload-image-to-the-game.html. If you manage to retrieve the name of a newely made screenshot (probably using some integer var and Sum node), you'll be probably able to download it then and convert to a texture using the node mentioned above.

I see no other way to solve this problem via blueprints.

Do you know if/how it's done in code?
