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"

Enable Motionblur and FOV change at specific velocity

As the title states, I'm attempting to change some of my camera settings when the character reaches a specific velocity. It's a 2d sidescroller, and my first project while trying to get used to UE4's systems.

Here is what I managed to hobble together via semi related tutorials and guesswork.I know I'm doing something wrong (maybe everything) but the system is so user-friendly I feel like I might not be too far from the actual solution.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hm one thing to consider is if you're using the comparefloat node you don't also need a branch node. I hope you have all those connected to something and not standing empty alone like you have in this screenshot (as it would do nothing in the state shown, since nothing is feeding into the Exec pin on Comparefloat).

Also your MakePostProcessSettings node doesn't actually set anything on your post process, it just creates a set of data that can be used to set the post process if the execution wires (the white ones) were to feed into something coming off of a Post Process object reference that sets those things.

It is just sitting there unconnected to anything, as I said I'm a complete noob when it comes to this. So I'm not sure what plugs into what aside from what can. What would this connect to and from? So my very poor example aside, I guess the question is how would I go about achieving the end goal? Do you know of any resources where I could direct my search?

hello. are you increasing the speed using an input event ?

avatar image FadeDragontear Oct 03 '18 at 09:27 PM

Not sure if I understand the question. The speed increases due to the acceleration setting of the character, so as they move along the x-axis they gain more speed. So if I'm understanding correctly the input event would be the player holding in the "D" or "A" key for a period of time.
