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 change player's camera FOV?

Hi. I would like to be able to change player's camera FOV in first person during gameplay using BP either by pressing a key or entering a volume. I can't find a way to set FirstPersonCamera FOV. Any ideas?

Hey Luis.hernadez,

You have two options!

Option 1, you hit ` on the top left of your Keyboard in-game. That will bring up the console, and then you can type fov [number], in my example I type fov 100. You can also do exact thing in Blueprint using the Execute Console Command Node.


Option 2, you find the camera within the Player Character Class. Drag it into the Event Graph, pick from it and Type Set Field Of View. You'll get a node allowing you to change the cameras FOV. I assign the change to activate when I press the Letter E.

I hope this helps.

Yes! You 've been of great help. In fact the second method is what I was asking for. My next step is to change the FOV depending on the size of the room that the player is getting in. I plan to make a volume that triggers the FOV change when the player enters, based in a value stored in the volume itself. I am not sure how to pass the value of the FOV from a variable containing it in the volume actor to the Player Character Class, but this is another story. Anyway, any help in that direction would be very welcomed.

Thank you very much again!!

If you are using First Person and in the my character BP then just get First person camera and drag off of that and "Set Field of View" But if you are in another blueprint then right click and "cast to FirstPersonCharacter", drag off the object and "Get Player Character", then drag off of "As First Person Character" and Type "get first person camera"
