    [GEAR VR] "Look around" orbital camera broken from 4.10 to 4.11

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for help on an issue involving a 3rd person camera in VR.

    I'm trying to get a camera that takes input from the tilt sensor and uses it to move the camera along a sphere centered around a fixed point.

    In 4.10, I was able to do this with just a standard Spring Arm with a camera for a child component.

    Everything was default to the 3rd person template except for:

    Spring Arm
    Use Pawn Control Rotation is TRUE.

    Use Controller Rotation Yaw is FALSE.

    With this camera I could easily look around.

    How can I get this camera behavior back?
    A blue print solution would be greatly appreciated.

    I got a very jittery version of the desired behavior to work using the following blueprint:

    It's so uncomfortable I can't possibly use it.

    "New Camera Base" is a scene root I added with a Spring Arm child and Camera Component grandchild.


      did you try playing around with different combinations of the two settings mentioned here:

      "Lock to HMD"
      "Use Pawn Control Rotation"

      Both in this screenshot:
