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"

Can I interpolate rotation pitch of a character in tick ?

I'm using the simple code in tick to update character rotation. Character keeps flickering and the target rotation doesn't set properly.

 FRotator ActorRotation = Character->GetActorRotation();
 FRotator LerpRotation = UKismetMathLibrary::RInterpTo(Character->GetActorRotation(), TargetRotation, DeltaTime, 30.f);
Product Version: UE 4.15

I never used UKismetMathLibrary::RInterpTo, but it might be that it is not meant to be used every frame. I use something this instead:

     float Speed = CLAMP(DeltaTime * LerpRotationSpeed, 0, 1);
     FQuat CurrentRotation = Camera->GetRelativeTransform().GetRotation();
     FQuat NewRotation = FQuat::FastLerp(CurrentRotation, TargetRotation, Speed);

The CLAMP function is a micro I use to make sure the value doesn't go above 1 on low framerates:

 #define CLAMP(value, min, max) (value >= max ? max : value <= min ? min : value)

I hope this helps :)

This way it works better, but is still flickering. Seems unreal physics don't let me update the rotation or something like that.
