CameraActor bug if FOV out of range (<5,170<)

This was asked many times, but seems no one mentioned it as ‘bug’.

  1. Add a CameraActor in scene
  2. Set FOV below 5 or greater than 170 via keyboard
  3. Camera mesh will ‘disappear’, Transform in Details will track user’s camera now

Put FOV in range 5-170 will turn CameraActor in place of present User’s camera location Transform will track it’s location.

Hi S-ed -

Hi Eric,

Any update on this issue? I am currently working with the camera system too and notice the same behavior in 4.9.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
