Hey guys, I’m still learning unreal engine so bear with me, but I wanted to render a scene with a Rotating Camera that’s orbiting an actor in my scene, a probe here. This I presumed could be done with a Cinecamera actor and a springarm, the springarm’s rotation is keyframed to orbit the probe 360 degrees. The components can be tracked and brought into the sequencer, but the final render doesn’t register them at all.
In the filmback picture in picture preview window, the render appears as I want it to appear in the final cut, but when the preview window pops up after initiating render, the result is a blank still of the frame, unmoving. From what I understand blueprint component logic doesn’t quite allow the camera to be “Seen” by the sequencer in this manner.
I’m not sure how to accomplish the task but would welcome alternatives. I just need a camera to follow a moving keyframed actor while orbiting around it. If it was possible to render out what the preview camera was rendering I’d opt for that option as well because it’s what I’m looking for. Images for reference:
