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"

Is it possible to record and export parts of your project in video format at RUNTIME?

So, I have been playing with the sequencer and you can set up a scene and export it as a video. However, I cannot find any nodes on how to record during runtime.

I am comfortable with a BP or C++ answer

I had a chat with a developer at Epic Games and the solution we came up with was to export a full video, with time stamps saved to a txt. Then use a Python and batch script to cut the video into smaller videos and upload it to a server.

The engine is not built for this and to even get something similar within the engine, one would need to heavily edit the engine source code

Win Matinee/Sequencer there's a movie button/clap board (like in the beginning of a movie scene to give information to the editor). Click that button for recording options.

These posts have extra information. I hope that answers your question!

Thanks for that, but, I just realised I didn't empahsise that I need multiple different videos, one for each animation being played. Sequencer records it as a whole and won't let me record parts or let me control it of external scripts. Matinee, does let me use external scripts, but shuts down after I stop the first recording.

Neither of these, work at Runtime
