Trace based on Screen Location?

Hi,

Is there any way to trace based on the Viewport and straight forward?

Basically, I want to trace and check if there’s stuff within a certain region of the screen. E.g.:

The closest thing I have now is a growing Mesh starting at the camera, but that’s just an ugly hack and not very exact and impossible to tweak.

Help would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Hi

Would this not work, do you need a cone?

But if I do that, it’ll trace a smaller part of “the screen” as it gets further away, right?

How far you looking for the trace, endless?

I would prefer to have a max range set. So for example; the screenspace assigned (like on the first image), from the camera and X units straight ahead. :slight_smile:
