After some time Unreal Crashed and when i reloaded camera starts to rotate in the direction of character while moving. Can anyone help me? im quete despert here :frowning:


Check that the “use controller rotation” settings are NOT checked, like in here.

That worked for me, Un-tick use controller rotation yaw, ya’ll !


Thank the lord for this thread. Eventhough I have used this method several times before, I keep forgetting this one step and this time it only took me 30 minutes to find this thread again lol. Thanks again!


Still helpful in 4.25

Thanks! I never expected this little tip would be so useful for so long…

Mine still doesn’t rotate for some reason, any advice? Remember I got the “Use Controller Rotation” options Un-checked.

I’m in UE5 and this tip is still a lifesaver! Thank you!

following the UE5 tutorial Your First Game In Unreal Engine 5 | Tutorial and this solved the broken rotation i got when i followed the instructions (unless i overlooked it in the tut). Thanks!


Thank you sir!

@anonymous_user_4bce4173 Wow thanks, I spent over 2 hours trying to find the problem to this. I saw something about it when I mouse overed it but could not find this option until I saw that pic, solved my issue!


Thanks a lot

thank you, I meet the seem problem

Glad to help! Thx for commenting.

Epic have a history of this. Tutorials that hit dead ends because they missed important steps.

Yep - needed it to get thru the tutorial. I guess learning to search the forums when things dont work is part of the learning lol.

Yep, as of Unreal 5.1 2023 this still works! Thanks for the help!


Oh my ! Thank you !
