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 Zoom Rotate around a target


I would like to build a kind of 3d models viewer in UE.

I need something that gives me the chance to Zoom, pan and rotate a 3d Model. Something like Sketchfab.


Mouse Right click: Rotate

Mouse Wheel: Zoom

Mouse Wheel Click: Pan

Any suggestion?


Product Version: UE 4.18

Camera on a Springarm does all that. Left/Right to control the Springarm angle, MouseWheel controls its radius. Panning is just moving the whole thing around.

And how would you go about doing this? I can do the Orbit and Zoom pretty easily but I'm having difficulties doing the pan.

to pan... I'd use the Set Socket Offset node (which is a vector that can move your camera Z up, X forward, Y sideways)... you can use Add Movement Input to the Z and Y float values when you split the vector

I have stumbled upon this forum that provide a camera that do just about anything the question ask. I managed to make it pan but my blueprint is probably a mess.
