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"

RotateAboutAxis broken

RotateAboutAxis seems to be horribly broken, resulting in... well nothing explainable really. Whatever is happening, it shouldn't be happening at all. See the examples below for how broken it is, it doesn't even respond to input.

Examples:

X-Axis
Input Vector: 1,0,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 1,0,0
Expected Output: 1,0,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,1,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 1,0,0
Expected Output: 0,1,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,0,1
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 1,0,0
Expected Output: 0,0,1
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Y-Axis
Input Vector: 1,0,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,1,0
Expected Output: 1,0,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,1,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,1,0
Expected Output: 0,1,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,0,1
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,1,0
Expected Output: 0,0,1
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Z-Axis
Input Vector: 1,0,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,0,1
Expected Output: 1,0,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,1,0
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,0,1
Expected Output: 0,1,0
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Input Vector: 0,0,1
Rotation Angle: 0
Rotation Axis: 0,0,1
Expected Output: 0,0,1
Actual Output, 0,0,0

Hello,

Could you provide a screenshot of the setup that you are using to reproduce this issue? Have you been able to reproduce this in a clean project?

Hey Sean,

the project I tried this on is a clean project (Blueprint, Blank, Starter Content, Max Quality). For the screenshot of the Material setup:

Basically the documentation demo with parameters

Wait, does this node calculate an offset to the original position? That's not how this node should work, if I wanted an offset, I'd calculate it myself from the result of that.

Hello,

I was looking into this issue, and came across a forum post that states that Rotate About Axis returns an offset. While this might not be exactly the same problem that you're running into, this thread does contain some good information: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?106445-Combining-Rotations-(RotateAboutAxis)-for-World-Position-ffset

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Have a great day

Yeah that is exactly the problem I ran into. The documentation for the node does not state that at all (please fix the documentation at some point). Also this means that I basically have to undo the work the node did. There goes performance...
