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"

The "Camera Boom" that they are using is a "Spring Arm" component you can add to your Blueprint.

If you attach the camera to the spring arm in the Viewport tab of the blueprint and make sure that the camera's location and rotation are set to zero, than the camera will look down the spring arm and you can adjust the length of the spring arm to make it zoom in and out.

They have most likely changed the name of the spring arm to "Camera Boom"
