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 do I include videos files in my UE4 project?

I've searched for answers to this question and all I have come across are other users asking similar questions with few to no answers. I need to be able to include video in my final product.

I saw one answer that said something along the lines of: 'video will be included down the track but in a new way' (I can't find the post now unfortunately).

I'd like to know: how far down the track will video inclusion be added?

At this point I'm thinking of switching engines because this is so important to my end product and there don't seem to be any definitive answers.

Thanks for any light anyone can shed.

You can already play video in UE, the new way they mentioned is for import in project and used on movie texture i think. Right now you can put any movies in Content/Movies folder, and do smth like this

 FLoadingScreenAttributes LoadingScreen;
 LoadingScreen.bAutoCompleteWhenLoadingCompletes = false;
 LoadingScreen.bMoviesAreSkippable = true;
 LoadingScreen.MoviePaths.Add(TEXT("PixelBeam_Intro"));
 GetMoviePlayer()->SetupLoadingScreen(LoadingScreen);
 GetMoviePlayer()->PlayMovie();

Try this simple project of me, i use to test to load movie in beginning. Btw u can only load movie from the build.

Hi sir, i would like to ask about it, if the build will be on the editor or build the project as standalone application like .exe? thanks sir...

Thank you..but before I start testing this... Is this compatible with UE4? I guess I should have put UE4 in my question.

Ok, because i have a lot of stuff in my test project and it so big so i just update my source code here instead. So you should make new project with the same name as mine is IntroLoading, then copy the source code and .uproject file over. Generate a solution file, or just simply add simple code from the editor. The error you got it's because u need a config file Config/DefaultEngine.ini and this line

 GameName=IntroLoading
