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"

Problems rotating an Actor

alt textI have an actor which I move in a circle path. This works great.

I want to rotate the actor itself at the same time so the actor "looks" always in the direction of moving. So when the actor flew 360 degrees than the actor itself rotated 360 degress also.

In the screenshot is my Blueprint. I use SetActorRotation for setting the rotation of the actor.

When I look at the animation in the 3D world it moves perfectly on a circle but it rotates more then 360 degrees around itself and it rotates randomly faster and slower.

Hi, I solved it totally differently with 2 timelines. The first for doing the location of the actor with a vector with 2 curves. One is a sinus curve and the other is a cosinus one which map to the x and z parts of the vector. The second timeline is a float which interpolates form 0 to 1. The timeline has a length of 2 seconds.

See the blueprint for my futher calculations.
