  • [PLUGIN] Smooth Zoom Actor Component Plugin

    Hi.

    The Smooth Zoom Actor Component plugin allows for easy creation of smooth camera zoom on any Actor / Pawn / Character that has a spring arm and camera component. This plugin is in BETA form and could crash, but I (and others) have tested and it appears to be working fine. Once additional testing has been completed, I'll change the version to 1.00 and compile as SHIPPING. Tested on 4.14 ONLY.

    Head over to github here to download and review the Wiki for instructions on how to use: https://github.com/teak421/SmoothZoom

    If you have any suggestions / comments / support, please post here.

    Thanks to [MENTION=38406]VictorBurgos[/MENTION] and [MENTION=331897]Valkrysa[/MENTION] for testing. Special thanks to Orfeas Eleftherior for guidance on this project.

          Please let me know if people would like to have a stream done for this... I'll set something up if needed for those folks who are the beginner side of UE4. If interested, let me know. Thanks.

                    Super useful, one of the things I see myself using as default - Epic should implement this into the springarm.

                        solved! just need create a c++ class in project and install plugin again.

                        Hello, I was try to install this plugin but I got "plugin missing or incompatible" message, and then "failed to load because module could not be found".
                        I'm using 4.14.1 version and plugin is placed in plugins folder.
                        How to fix it?

                          Hi there... You did it correctly, I guess I should include that in the documentation! Thank you for bringing it to my attention! Good luck.

                            I was like. "I wonder what this is.."

                            And now I'm wondering why it's not a default option or at least included in the Top-Down Template.
