    Creating First Person camera

    Hey looking to create a first person camera that i can control with my controller inputs such as my mouse,Keyboard and xbox controller just like the first person template. My controls are working great that i set up but i cant seem to figure out how to connect the controls into my camera.
    I know i can use the first person template and delete the arms etc but i want to do this for learning purposes and i cant find any resources on how to do this

    Any help will be great.

    I attached some images of my scenes blueprints and my camera setup
    Attached Files

    I moved it to blueprints.

    As to camera:
    first step in new project you need to setup gamemode and player pawn (maybe also player controller). So create custom game mode blueprint "BP_GameMode", and your pawn: "BP_Pawn"
    in pawn add camera arm and camera arrange it so arm is attached to scene root and camera is attached to arm.
    Now open BP_GameMode and point it to BP_Pawn in properties. Then open project settings (editor tab in menu, then project settings) ther in maps and modes point it to BP_GameMode.
    Make your axis input events and keyboard events in project settings under input.

    When you have all that done. Add your input events in BP_Pawn,

    in this topic i posted pictures with my setup:
