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 SpectatorScreen Widget - stretching

Hi everyone.

The 4.17 spectator screen feature is giving us quite the headache. We're trying to display a HUD on a widget for the screenouput of our VR experience. We're using a SceneCaptureComponent2D to render into a RenderTarget and while it does work technicaly we are running into this stretching issue. As you can see, the sidget appears heavily stretched. and is not covering the whole screen as we would have imagined. Does anybody have experience with this issue or an idea where we went wrong? Any help is appreciated.

Can I ask how on earth you've got it wired up so that the render target and the umg widget display to the spectator screen? I'm trying to solve this but Can only seem to render the output of the scene capture component 2d. I want to be able to add a UMG overlay on top of that and can't figure it out.

I was able to solve the problem by changing the RenderTexture to a 16:9 ratio. When I tried that before (4.17) it used to squish the HUD even more. The most likely problem was a user error on my part as I did not understand the correlation of all the elements involved.
