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"

Capturing a snapshot with USceneCaptureComponent2D with postprocess material

I'm using a USceneCaptureComponent2D to take snapshots at certain moments.

In the scene I'm using a PostProcess Volume which covers the whole level, and inside I'm using a blendable with a PostProcess material (to create outlines).

The problem is that when I take a snapshot the PostProcess material is ignored completely.

This is the code that creates the scene capture component:

 mSceneCaptureComponent->ProjectionType = ECameraProjectionMode::Type::Perspective;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->FOVAngle = 90.0f;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->CaptureSource = ESceneCaptureSource::SCS_FinalColorLDR;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->CompositeMode = ESceneCaptureCompositeMode::SCCM_Overwrite;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->bCaptureOnMovement = false;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->bCaptureEveryFrame = false;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->MaxViewDistanceOverride = -1.0f;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->bAutoActivate = true;
 mSceneCaptureComponent->DetailMode = EDetailMode::DM_High;

And this is how I take the snapshot at certain moments:


Is there anything particular I should do to have postprocessing in the snapshot? I couldn't find any information on the internet...

News: I've discovered that if I enable bCaptureEveryFrame then it works, but alas I can't use it in my project. Is there a way to make it work without it?
