Is there a way to access plugin methods in c++? More specifically, is there a way to call the functions of the kinect 4 unreal plugin in c++? For example if I want a cube to spawn at the position of my head and follow its movements, is that possible in code? Or if I want my character to move when I make a walking movement with my body, can I only do that in blueprints?
UE4 Plugin methods can be used just like methods in any other modules. UE4 Plugin methods can be exposed in blueprint the same as any other functions exposed in any other modules. If these methods are exposed and not accessible, either your C++ module dependencies are not set up correctly or the plugin is not enabled.
Apparently the plugin can only be used in blueprints I asked on the plugin’s thread.
"The plugin exposes the Kinect data as blueprint nodes alone for the moment. This was a deliberate decision by us to ensure that our plugin could be as usable as possible. Have you tried extending a C++ class into blueprints and then using a Kinect Interface Component to retrieve the data that is then processes by your C++ logic? "
