SceneCapture2DActor “Fix”

SceneCapture2DActor “Fix”
================================================== ==============
Title: “Reflection Fixes”: SceneCapture2DActorFix & SceneCaptureReflectActorFix
Version: Version “Uncompiled”
Release Date: September 2014
Author(s): TKBS
Description: SceneCapture2DActorFix Adds a Sprite and Static Mesh for easier (rotation) use in Editor. Good for LD’s.
SceneCaptureReflectActorFix allows the actor to show in game; saves hassle. Good for LD’s.
More information:

  • I may release a compiled version with a mod in the future, try to rename your actor if you use this code
  • RattleSN4K3 has kindly provided an in editor version (a non-‘.u’ script fix that you can paste directly into the map, see below)
  • Turning on Camera ‘frustrum’ in the “flags” can also help
  • I spent a stupid amount of time trying to get the normal “SceneCaptureReflectActor” to work and had absolutely no joy then hrs later i remembered i could do this fix aswel..
  • .. Maybe someone else can provide a comprehensive thread for it
  • By default FPS is set to 1000, this is a bit of an overkill and can be drastically reduced, choose your setting wisely

Download Link: n/a (not needed, compile your own)
