4.5 UMG Widget Translation issue

I want to place my widget from 3d position converted into 2d space.


  • Widget have pivot 0,0
  • I’ve a point in 3d world converted to 2d screen coordinate,
  • I’m creating widget → set pivot to 0,0, → set translation to the 2d screen coordinate,
  • BUT ALWAYS my screen is positioned 100-150 pixels to left,
  • I’m drawing 2d box at 2d screen coordinate and it seems to be OK,

How are you setting the position?


I can reproduce the what is happening in your image. However, to make sure that this is an issue it would help greatly if you could provide a screen shot of your setting in the details panel as well as a screen shot of the positioning of your assets within the canvas panel.

i got similar issue. The screen position and render translation is not exactly the same. The render translation need to be multiplied by a factor depending on current display resolution to produce correct result.
for example:
640x480 → multiply by 2.25
1280x960 → multiply by 1.25
the formula for that factor is something like: 1080/min(resx, resy)
