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"

What is a "Stereo Static Mesh"?

I have looked: Online In the Editor On UE4 Answers In the Documentation

Nothing tells me what the Stereo Static Mesh is or what it does or what it is meant for.

I haven't seen it before so I am assuming it is something new and Stereo makes me think it is for VR.

Can someone PLEASE tell me what this is????

Product Version: UE 4.12

Hi QFGlenn

Can you give any context to where you saw this at? I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to.

You're not referring to Instanced Stereo Rendering mentioned in the 4.11 Release notes, are you? (4.11 release notes)

If you have more information about where got this from I can at least start looking and see what I can find about it. Unfortunately, not all of the staff know everything about everything, so I'll do what I can to find out for you though. :)

Thanks!

Tim

In a blueprint, click add component. Right below the option for static mesh is stereo static mesh.

This was confusing me - right now in 4.13, it's not working when instanced stereo is turned on.

It does not much by looking over the Source Code. Its a Simple Static mesh with the Option to choose a Eye it will Render on. Options are Left, Right or Both.

What confuses me a bit though there are Panorama related classes too in that Plugin. So Im not sure if it will work with Normal VR or only with the Panorama Capture.

But thats about it. You can take a look at it yourself there is just a single Property and one additional Function. https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/tree/release/Engine/Plugins/Experimental/StereoPanorama/Source/StereoPanorama/Private
