Camera Socket Player's Head?

Having an issue attaching the camera to the player. Previously I would have attached it to a parent socket on the head but that option isn’t available for some reason any ideas or solutions? It’s to be first person multiplayer and so the head is required.

It looks like your camera is attached to the capsule component instead of the mesh, drag it onto the mesh to attach it there instead, after that you will have the option of selecting the parent bone/socket.

Okay so I’ve changed it so it’s like this

Problem is that I can turn the camera to face the face

You’ll need to adjust the transform of the Camera so that it is offset better from the mesh, i.e positioned more inside the head. As it is now, it is a bit far in front.
If you don’t want the player to see the model at all, you can set OwnerNoSee to true in the mesh settings

you probably want to make your character turn with the camera too.

I do not know if you’re using BP or C++, but from this you can do the same with BP.

Yeah Alex that’s what I’m looking for but I can’t understand how to do it from that video. I remember someone taught me a while back and it was quite a simple fix.

this does the trick



	bUseControllerRotationPitch = false;
	bUseControllerRotationYaw = true;
	bUseControllerRotationRoll = true;


From BP you also have access to these varibales (just copy and paste what is below in your “YourCharacterBP” Event Graph or search for the getters and setters right there)
