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"

Pilot mode bug when piloting a character with a camera

Hi, I've been fiddling with the pilot mode in order to set up characters on my scene but whenever I lock the viewport to the camera component inside the character and try to move it with left click or right click and move keys, the editor sends the character flying. This however doesn't happen when locking the viewport to the center of the character actor.

Product Version: UE 4.10

Hi TCellario,

  • Does this occur in a clean, blank project with no additional content or is it limited to one project?

  • What steps can I take to reproduce this on my end?

  • Are you in PIE when the character goes flying or does this occur in the editor viewport outside of PIE?

Hi Adam,

This bug occurs both in a blank project and in a project using default assets. To reproduce :

  • Import or create a character class blueprint in the project.

  • Add a camera component to the character.

  • Go back to the editor and place said character in the scene.

  • Right click the character and select "Pilot"

  • Use either left click or right click + WASD or Arrow keys to move the character in the editor and send it flying.

No I am not in PIE, it happens when i'm piloting the character in the editor by using the pilot mode.

After further testing, it appears that the bug is caused by locking the viewport to a Camera component, whatever the blueprint class it is attached to.

Hi TCellario,

I was able to reproduce this on my end and have entered a bug report, UE-23872, to be assessed by the development staff.

I see the issue has been closed (https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-23872) yet the behaviour is still present in 4.19. Any updates on this?
