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"

Changing 'Manual Focus Distance' at Runtime crashing Engine.

Hi there,

I'm currently working on a screenshot mode for my project, in which I'm accessing various camera settings / image effect settings at runtime via a UMG elements.

I'm experiencing a hard crash at runtime when changing the 'Manual Focus Distance' setting, despite it working in the Editor Preview just fine.

Looking for any advise on getting it working if possible please, not sure if its a 4.15 bug?

Hello DarrenBailey,

I was not able to reproduce this issue on our end. I have a couple of questions that will help me narrow down your issue.

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a new project?

  2. If so, can you provide a detailed list of steps so I can reproduce this issue?

  3. Could you provide screenshots of your issue?

Hi Thomas,

Yeah I've just reproduced it on a fresh project with No Starter Content.

I'll Provide a screenshot on the blueprint. Its added to a New Pawn which would be used as the character controller, but essentially I'm just adding to the Manual Focus Distance variable on a key press In this example, which works fine when previewing inside the Editor, but its crashes when I press the Key running the Build.
