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 do I export a Matinee with sound?

Hi I am wondering how to export my 5 minute long animation in Matinee. It has sounds included which I need. I do not want to use an external recording program to do this but if I absolutely have to which one should I use and how should I do it. I am wondering if I can somehow record all of it with sound from UE4 without anything else. How can I do it?

I wait till sequencer, because to make a short movie, let's say, 120 seconds,with this beautiful GAME engine, untill it isn't optimized for filming, as the company IS looking in that direction ( remember No royalties on movies, not a penny) it is just too much complicated, not difficult but complicated....Execellent instrument, best graphic I saw for realtime; but I must surrender.... I can bring in iClone characters, DAZ with animations, problems with the mandibula and the tongue running around the frame, and now the AVI codec which sucks a drive and.... no sound! NO it is enough for me... I love UE4 but I will wait faithfull...for some more cinema friendly dedicated tool....

You can record an AVI with sound by using the Movie button inside Matinee. But you should know that it is going to have a huge size(tens of GB's for a 5min video at 1080p) and it is because the output is uncompressed, so you'll have to use another software to compress it to another format afterwards.

Hi again Jacky lol, Okay I just tried to record it by using the Movie button but I am not sure where the file is at after I recorded it.

Hello. :)

Check your Project folder > Saved > Video Captures.

Okay I am not sure if I had actually replied to you the first time I tried so if I did I am sorry for the double reply. I found it and it is 66gb and I am fine with that because I will compress it but the main problem is that there is no audio

avatar image Jacky May 19 '14 at 09:38 PM

Huh...now i am confused. All this time i thought AVI would record sound as well. I normally use frame by frame recording and then get the sound with another software so i never actually tried AVI. Guess it doesnt record sound after all and i feel stupid. :\

Hopefully we'll get more options with Sequencer in the future. For now, you can use something like Audacity to record the sound but then you'll have to use another software to combine it with the video.

Instead of combining the two together would it be easier to use Fraps?

avatar image Jacky May 19 '14 at 09:43 PM

Oh, of course. If you have the GPU power then definitely go for it. My GTX 460 cant handle Fraps at high resolutions so i tend to look for other alternatives, thats why i forgot about it..lol

You can also try Shadow Play or something? that nvidia driver has if your GFX is 600 series or above.

avatar image brycem24 May 19 '14 at 09:46 PM

I have a AMD 7850 so I can't use Shadow Play. My problem with Fraps is that I would have to somehow use my expert (terrible) video editing skills to cut out the windows borders. Is there anyway around that?

avatar image Jacky May 19 '14 at 09:52 PM

No idea, i dont have much of an experience with Fraps. :\

avatar image brycem24 May 19 '14 at 09:52 PM

Okay I will figure it out

avatar image brycem24 May 21 '14 at 02:35 PM

Well crap, it is 66 Gb and the audio isn't included.

avatar image Draian63 Oct 01 '15 at 10:17 PM

Yeah that's the point

You'll have to wait for Sequencer and see what it brings us.

Hi Showpixel,

I have spoken to our Matinee/Sequencer developer about this before and he does plan on including this functionality in Sequencer. In the near future you will hear more about this developing from our announcements. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask and I will be happy to provide as many answers as I can.

Any ETA on this?

avatar image Alexander Paschall ♦♦ EPIC Jan 12 '15 at 02:45 PM

The progress can be tracked on our public trello board here:


avatar image Draian63 Oct 01 '15 at 10:22 PM

Strongly waiting for this, Unreal is such Unreal, for making movies... it's future...from trello and if II correctly understood there should be something new in next Oct. Let's hope :-)
