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"

VR - Face locked stereo layer doesn't follow camera after "Set Orientation and Position" on GearVR and Rift

Previously (tested on 4.15) the node "Reset Orientation And Position" could be used to rotate the camera, and any Face Locked stereo layer would remain, well, face locked.

As of 4.17.1, "Reset Orientation And Position" rotates the camera in VR properly, but the stereo layer no longer follows the camera.

Since this is currently the only good method I know of of rotating a player in VR, and I cannot seem to force the stereo layers to follow with set rotation (component, scene, or actor, same results) or whatever, they seem completely broken to me.

Steps to reproduce: (4.17.1)

  1. Create a Blank project

  2. Create a new Pawn and set it as default Pawn

  3. Inside the Pawn, add a "Stereo Layer" component and a Camera

  4. In the Stereo Layer component, set any example texture (eg. Engine/EngineResources/Bad.uasset)

  5. Set the StereoLayer location in front of the camera (eg. (100;0;0))

  6. In the Pawn's Event Graph, add any input Event (eg. "SpaceBar")

  7. Create two "Reset Orientation and Position" nodes

  8. Connect one to the Pressed and the other to the released

  9. Set different Yaw values for each node (use small values, otherwise the StereoLayer might get behind you) (eg. 0 and 10)

  10. Fire up VR preview with a Rift connected

  11. Marvel as the face locked Stereo Layer unlocks from your face when you press the space bar

The same steps on 4.15.3 result in a perfectly face locked face locked layer

Is there any solution to fix it? I tried many things with transforms, rotation and location to put stereo layer in right position after HMD reset, but nothing helped me :(
