I created a 3rd person template c++ project using ue 4.21.2.
My goal is to make the third person template firsts person by moving the camera forward and re parenting it to the mesh (hierarchically positioning it below the mesh as a child).
Using blueprints, it is as simple as dragging the camera onto the mesh. However, with the c++ project it won’t allow me to do that (The selected component is inherited and cannot be reordered here).
So, I added this code to my CustomCharacter.cpp file:
However, when I compile the project (no errors) nothing changes. The camera component is not a child of the mesh. It is located in it’s original position on the hierarchy.
I am new to c++ programming, any and all help is appreciated!
