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"

Hey lucastakejame,

If this is two separate issues with the camera rig rail system, we ask that you create a separate post for the second one. I am also going to request you provide me with some simple repro steps to follow in a new blank project so I can test on my end.

Let me know if you have further questions or need additional assistance.

Hi, was a solution found to this problem. I am having the exact same issue in my level and now when I close and reopen the project rails and camera's no longer work.

Would you mind testing this in a new blank 4.14 project to check and see if the issue exists there?

Can you also provide me with some steps and screenshots in order for me to reproduce the issue on my end in a new blank project?

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

I'm having the same issues.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create camera rig

  • Add cine camera as child node

  • Animate the Path on Rig in Sequencer.

  • Save All Assets.

  • Reopen project

Find that the rig no longer moves, even though the Path-keyframes still work. Changing the rig and undoing makes the whole rig go away.

I am not getting the same results in a new 4.14 project. I attempted to reproduce the issue with the steps you provided, but there could be something I am missing or something you might have left out.

I simply added a new Camera Rig Rail, added a CineCamera component as a child of the RailCameraMount, animated it within sequencer, then reopened my project.

Let me know if there is something I am missing or if you have further questions.

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

Hello, I have the same issue. In my sequence I have two keys for "Current Position on Rail". When I play the sequence the camera should move along the rails, but it's not. If I choose the "CameraRig_Rail" in the outliner and change the value here the camera follows the rail. When I do this it will also update the mesh of the rail as it's not updating when I change the spline points.

In the image bellow you can see that the camera should be in the middle of the rail but it's at the beginning. alt text

This worked fine the other day. Now when I started working on it again it would not work. It's Version 4.14

Hey Bjorsell,

Would you mind providing me with some simple steps on my end, because I have tested this setup multiple times now, and do not get the same results.

In this case, try to be as specific as possible (especially when talking about the keyframing process). If you would rather provide me with the project where the issue is occurring that is fine as well.

Thank you,

Andrew Hurley

Hey, Sorry for the last answer. I've been working with other stuff. I've been trying to reproduce the issue in a clean project without success. Looks like its something in our project. Unfortunately it's extremely large so I can't share it.
