After you have imported or created your Character, Vehicle, or Flying Spaceship Asset, you will need to define how it reacts to Player Input. Defining Input is primarily done through user defined Bindings of Action Mappings (which are for key presses and releases) and Axis Mappings (which are for inputs that have a continuous range).

Once you have defined your Mappings, you can then bind them to behaviors in Blueprints or C++ (see the Setup section below).

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.
