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 get camera to stay behind character

Hey, so I'm using the 3rd person template for testing some things, I wanted to find out how could I make the camera constantly stay behind the player character, so that it always stays behind him, even when the player turns, the camera adjusts to stay in that default view and follow.

any help would be appreciated!

You have to replace the "Get Control Rotation" inside of your characters Event Graph with "Get Actor Rotation".

That will take care of it.

Hi Jarrod.Cooper13

A very simple way to do this is to, in the ThirdPersonCharacter Blueprint, select the CameraBoom in Components Tab, then in the Details panel deselect the check boxes for Camera settings shown below so that you are no longer using the Pawn controls to affect the camera:
