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 unhide hidden actor when the actor would be on screen.

I am using --this blueprint-- to hide my actor when it is off screen. I want to unhide the actor when it should be back on screen, but because of the nature of the "Was Recently Rendered" node it doesn't see a hidden, not-rendered actor.

If possible, it would be great if I could use the Was Recently Rendered node only on certain components of an actor, but it only accepts actors as its reference target.

My blueprint is a portal, and I want to hide the Scene Capture component when the player isn't looking at the portal, because it is so resource intensive.

Product Version: UE 4.13

As far as I know the engine automatically stops rendering stuff that the player isn't seeing so there's no need for you to do it manually. If you still want to do this then maybe try the Set Visibility node instead.

Unfortunately even when not looking at a scene capture portal they hog system resources. They only stop capturing the scene when they are not visible or hidden.
How would I adapt this with a Set Visibility node?
