Whats the difference between a Raycast and a Line Trace?

Could someone explain the difference? As I understand it a Raycast is for collisions, whereas a line-trace doesn’t ‘necessarily’ use collision data and is simply a line? Not sure…

I’m referring mainly to the use of the “Single Line Trace by Channel” node in the Blueprint Editor, I’m trying to do two traces, find a collision for each of them, then grab the Min of both values.

There is no difference. Raycast and Line Trace is two terms for the same thing.

Excellent, that simplifies things for me massively. Thanks :slight_smile:
