SceneCaptureComponent2D attach problem

I found this bug on 4.13 and 4…12.

If you attach a decal in C++ with SetupAttachment() or AttachToComponent()
or if you use AttachToComponent or AttachToActor node in BP
totally if you want to attach this component to another Component or Actor …
The attache SceneCaptureComponent2D can’t render decal !

Hello Vahid,

Can you provide me with some screenshots and a way to reproduce this in a new blank project?

Let me know if you have additional questions.


I found where is the problem, if a attach to a component that has not default scale, that will cause problem, You can download the blank project from this link, I don’t have this problem in 4.10.2

In the screenshot 1.jpg i changed the scale of parent for the box that has scenecapture component

Well it seems to render correctly in the test project you provided, so I am not sure what you are reporting. I even set the ‘Scale Rule’ for the AttachToComponent node within your blueprint to different settings and the decal rendered as expected.

Perhaps I am not understanding what you are saying, but it seems like you found the solution to the issue. It is expected that you need to provided a scaling method when spawning the actor and attaching it to an actor.

Let me know if you have further questions.


in my test project there’s a SceneComponent that i use to attach the spawned class (class that have SceneRenderComponent) to that, if i change that SceneComponent scale the SceneRenderComponent can’t render decals as you can see in 1.jpg in my comment.
My problem still exist in my main project because in my other project I’ve to attach SceneRenderComponent to a scaled parent so it wont work!
for now i used an alternative way, I set the location & rotation of parent to my SceneRenderComponent in tick function!
