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"

Media Plane component missing

I recently upgraded a project to a use UE 4.21. There was a blueprint class using a Media Plane component in the project, but after the upgrade, the component mysteriously vanished, leaving compilation errors in the class's blueprints. Media Plane is also missing from the "Add component" menu. This is odd considering there was no deprecation warning and no mention of media plane in the release notes. I found that the media plane component comes from the Media Compositing plugin and the plugin is indeed enabled. I disabled the plugin, restarted the editor, re-enabled the plugin and restarted the editor, but the component is still missing. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Edit: After investigating the git history, it would appear that the Media Plane component was removed in 4.20. Is there a new alternative now?

Product Version: UE 4.21

As I can see, it was deleted in 4.20.

Probably replaced with another functionality? There are a lot of files was added to MediaFramework plugin, like MediaBundleActorBase.

I looked into Media Framework Utilities. No luck, nothing in there behaves like a media plane. Even the plane component in MediaBundleActorBase (and its 16:9 subclass) does not behave like media plane. It's just a regular plane.

Try using the Image plate / Image plate component (in the Image Plate plugin)

Thank you very much. Image Plate was a perfect replacement!
