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"

Changing the FOV of a camera inside the level

This seems a bit odd to me, but what I'm trying to do is add a "zoom" effect to my god camera inside the scene. Seems straight forward enough right? Just access it's field of view and change it's value. However I can't seem to access my god cameras field of view (it's just a camera inside the scene) because from the research that I've done, it seems like it's only possible to change the field of view for a camera if it's a camera component reference on an actor.

I have to be missing something here, I can't think of a reason why I wouldn't be able to change the camera's field of view even though it's not a camera component reference.

Thanks for any and all help!

Drag the pin from your camera actor variable in the level BP and Get Camera Component. Then drag from that component to set field of view.

Thank you! I ended up setting it up a different way but at least now I know that I can do this. :)
