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 do I record myself in the VR editor?

I would like to record myself while working in the VR Editor. Until now I've used Shadowplay to record the mirror of the VR view on the monitor. This is however very blurry and has a narrow field of view.

How can I get the mirror on the monitor to look like they show in the 'Updates to VR Editor | Feature Highlight | Unreal Engine' Video? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20kzY5axUOM&t=2221s)

Or is there a different way of recording myself other than using Shadowplay?

Product Version: UE 4.17

If you are on the Oculus Rift, you can use the Oculus Compositor Mirror for that. More information here:


I assume there is something similar for the Vive, very likely among the Debug Tools / Utilities.

Thanks, I will try it out on monday. I'm using the Vive, so I'll need to look it up. At least I know where to look now.

I tried it using the Steam VR Mirror. Only problem was that when I switched from UE4 to the Mirror window it stopped showing UE4... I fixed it (for now) by splitting the screen UE4/Mirror, that way UE4 can be active while also having the mirror on the screen beside it (later i'll crop the recording in Premiere).

Still a shame that the Steam mirror only shows it in eye form. Would be nice to have it fullscreen, like in the 'Updates to VR Editor' video.

But this is already much better, thanks!
