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"

For this example I use three cameras. I used the FP_Camera and TP_Camera for get transformation of player controller. And Trans_Cam for visualisation of transition.

This works great, but not if your transitions are linked to an active button.

I made a modification of this which allows transitions to be controlled by holding or releasing the button rather than a toggle. alt text alt text This implementation won't jitter or jump if you release the mouse before transition completes (it reverses direction instead), rotation is applied alongside lerp to keep transition camera in a consistent orientation. My implementation was for an Over the Shoulder style camera, but could easily be swapped for a first person camera instead. If you want to use a OTS style cam like I did, the second image shows my setup - there were no majors changes to the OTS/Trans camera from the Follow cam, beyond turning off auto-activate. The over shoulder positioning is handled by changing the socket location of the spring arm (called OTSCameraBoom here). I moved both boom (spring)arms up in the Z axis.

This was super helpful, thanks so much!

I wanted to make a solution in C++ instead of relying on Blueprints, and I found the Blueprint you provided to be extremely useful. If anyone is curious about this C++ approach, I wrote a Medium article about it: https://medium.com/@saramontecino/unreal-c-transition-between-two-cameras-759a51325b1

I have tried solution from here on GearVR and it seems this method doesn't work there.

If you want to move the camera from front/rear to side, add a SetWorldRotation node immediately after the SetWorldLocation node, and link in the Rotation from the Lerp (Transform) node. Works like a charm! Thanks!

Also - in 4.20, I had to put a Break Transform node after the Lerp (Transform) node. All other connections worked fine in 4.20.
