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 "export render target" function works?

I am trying to use "export render target" function - it works in some way - it writes a file to disk with given name but it is unreadable in Photoshop - are the some settings to set up within Render Target texture to make it work?

Product Version: UE 4.15

I had to go by alll the settings one by one to get it to export to png.

Here's the settings I used to get it to export to PNG.

On your SceneCaptureComponent se tthe 'Capture Source' to 'Final Color (LDR) in RGB'. On your RenderTarget2D set the target format to 'RTF RGBA8'.

This made the file readable for me.

This post is relevant to my needs because I was trying to take a picture of my level for a map menu. Your suggestion completely worked, so thank you!

I simply wanted to add that my renders were showing up a bit washed out with whiteness so I wanted to add 2 other settings I changed on the CaptureComponent2D ...

I set 'CaptureEveryFrame' and 'CaptureOnMovement' to false.

Thats not a rendertarget. Thats a texture

I think it can only export a hdr image file, but you can use a converter to change it from hdr to some other file type,
