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"

[Closed] Set range shortcut key not working in shots

Hello, I am working in shots in sequencer. The shortcut key for setting playback range doesn't work inside shots. I don't know if it's on purpose or what and I've tried to search for why it might not be working but did not find anything. So I am assuming it's a bug. If it's not a bug and there is a way to get it working I would like to know then. Thanks.

EDIT: Also am using source build version. Maybe if there is a way there that can fix this, it'd be good.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Did you mean to post this in a different section?

I should've probably posted it in another section. But at the time I didn't know which one would've been better.

Yeah, probably need to be in a different section. But I'll answer...

This is intentional. Modifying the playback range inside a shot can possibly end up affecting other shots if this source is used multiple times. If you want to take a stab at changing the code yourself and loosening this restriction, take a look at Sequencer.cpp. Remove:

 FCanExecuteAction::CreateSP( this, &FSequencer::IsViewingMasterSequence ) );

from SetStartPlaybackRange and SetEndPlaybackRange so that they look like this:

     FExecuteAction::CreateSP( this, &FSequencer::SetPlaybackRangeStart ) );


     FExecuteAction::CreateSP( this, &FSequencer::SetPlaybackRangeEnd ) );

Oh I see. Thanks a lot. I will test it out still and see how much work is effected by turning this feature on.
