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"

How to fade to black on headset rotation?

Hi guys,

Im aware this may already be on the forums but i just cant find it :(

what im trying to do is just fade the view to black when the player roates his head either past 90 or -90 degrees from 0.

i did this as a guess but im way out of my depth and as you can see it just applies the exposure immediately to the world regardless of headset rotation.

Any help is appreciated!

Start by handling only the Yaw rotation (=rotation around the Z axis, which is the vertical axis straight out of the HMD) since Pitch and Roll will very likely never exceed 90 degrees unless someone throws themeselves on the floor or stand upside down on their hands.

Assuming Yaw = 0 is the player looking straight ahead (depends on how you do your calibration), take the Absolute value of the Yaw angle (ABS node) and, with a Branch, check whether it is > 90. If it is (True output), apply the fade to black. If not (False output), remove the fade to black.

Regarding the fade, instead of modifying Post Processing properties, you can also use Start Camera Fade: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/CameraFades/StartCameraFade/
