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 change the camera perspective?

Hi there! I have a level where the player is platforming upwards jumping on platforms attached to a pillar in the middle. For this scene, I would like the player camera to go from third person perspective to a zoomed side view of the pillar, rotating around it as the player moves around it.

How can I achieve this?

Thank you in advance!

MAke 2 camera components and activate and deactivate, by default engine picks view target's first found active camera component in possessed pawn keep only one active that you want to be viewed, you can change that behavior in C++ by overriding actors (which is set as view tareget) CalcCamera function


Once you got camera set you simply operate position of camera component, if you want outside of player perceptive you simply palce camera actors (which are empty actors with camera component) set them as view target. There to verion of Set View Target node which let you make transition form one to another

Thank you for the quick answer! Can you tell me how to make the new camera move around the pillar similarly to this video? https://youtu.be/Kt_u9RelDho?t=24m1s

Thank you!

Good morning, ours I'm behind a tutorial that explains how I can make a camera system like this, but I have not found any yet, if I can get something to share with us

In my case it can be a system that the camera follows a spline, and in the spline I'm putting the Zoom and spinning!
