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"

Wrong format when importing movie to MediaPlayer

So, I've just started working with UE4 and I want to have a video looped on a TV. Everything seems to work, but when I import my movie source file to the Media Player it plays in the wrong format, all zoomed in and squeezed. How can I change the settings so that the movie plays in the right format? Cheers!

This is most likely a problem with your UV's of the TV. Make sure the UV shell for the display is square and takes up the whole grid. This is because when you preview the media file in the content browser it squishes the video into a square automatically.

Oh Alright. Thanks! Is there a quick way to fix the UV directly in Unreal? I made a model of the TV in Maya with a fixed UV map so I just assumed that it automatically would be right in UE4 to.

There's no way to do it in UE4, you'll have to do it in maya
