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"

Hi all,

is there a way to display texture produced by Scene Capture Cube instead of main rendering display? Basically I want to replace standard camera output with the cube output. Is that possible?

Scene Capture Cube actor captures panoramic image of the scene like that. I dont know if it is achievable with normal camera actor though.

Hi Jacky, thanks for your answer. I ve tried, but didnt managed to route that signal as it is to a surface. Is it there for reflections, do i understand correctly? I am looking for a way to "route" that image to a graphicoutput to use it somewhere else. I tried texture target2d but it seems not to be compatible with screen capture cube in the blueprinteditor.

You can turn that texture of scene capture cube into a static texture and then use it as an HDR image in a skylight, post process or a material, or even export it as an HDRI if that's what you want.

Thats pretty cool! Exactly what i am looking for. Thanks!

The framerate goes low when i do this, is this expected? On the shooterproject for example, with the normal camera is my framerate at 60, but when i place the scene capture cube and put the resolution to 2048 its goes down to 5 fps, at 1024 to 15fps. May i ask if its possible to get a better performance? I have two setups here, one with a gtx 780 and a second one with gtx880m, both have ssds installed. On the 880m it crashed several times the nvidia driver (latest one)

I want to send the image of the reflection cube to another software (d3) and remap the image onto different architecture for projectionmapping. The preferred resolution is 1920x1080, because the videoinputcard on the d3 only supports this resolution.

Thanks in advance!

If you want to capture and update it in real time then it can be a bit performance hungry with that size. If not you can right click on the texture in the content browser and turn it into a static texture.
