Syntax

virtual void GetActorEyesViewPoint
(
    FVector & OutLocation,
    FRotator & OutRotation
) const

Remarks

Returns the point of view of the actor. Note that this doesn't mean the camera, but the 'eyes' of the actor. For example, for a Pawn, this would define the eye height location, and view rotation (which is different from the pawn rotation which has a zeroed pitch component). A camera first person view will typically use this view point. Most traces (weapon, AI) will be done from this view point.

Parameters

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
