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"

Fairly new to UE4, but been using UDK for a while, Following some tutorials for changing camera on button press, i've added a camera (it shows in the outliner) But when I go to select the camera in myGame, level, or my character blueprints, it cant find anything!?

Hey Dodge,

When trying to reference the placed camera with your Level blueprint, if you select the camera in the Scene Outliner and then right-click in the Level blueprint to bring up the context menu, you should have the option to make a Reference to the camera actor which you can plug into the Set View Target with Blend node.
