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"

Camera pan according to roll rotation

Hi everybody!

I have a simple camera, it follows objects in the world. Sometimes, my camera is upside down, or 3/4 right. The roll (X) changes all the time.

On this camera, I have a simple pan blueprint (yaw and pitch). It works when the camera is straight (roll = 0). But, the pan is inverted when the camera is upside down. Normal so far.

Here, a wonderful sketch! alt text

My question is, how to keep my yaw and pitch (Z and Y) always in the right direction, related to the roll (X) ? (-1 and 1 always at left and right or top and bot, and not inverted).

Thank you very much for help!

if you use add rotation to your actor , user add relative rotation instead of add world rotation and also you can ignore roll rotation on your actor too

You're right! I don't know why I tried to do this with a "set", plus a "world" rotation x) Add local rotation for actor is the best way to achieve what I was looking for.

Thank you!
