    There is a method called "Add to Viewport" which will add your widget to the screen.

      Why did you create Slate? What is the advantage of Slate in comparision to other GUI solutions like Qt?

        Portability (works on any platform the engine works on), rendering efficiency, we don't have to deal with a 3rd party's whims, the license on Qt has changed quite a few times if I recall correctly. With slate we don't have to worry about any of that.

          Thank you Unreal for this. UMG will definitely go to good use. I really like the fact that this twitch broadcast turned into a tutorial for UMG. I feel like I'm ready to use it and utilize slate. I kinda stayed away from slate until now.

            I can't wait until it's uploaded to Youtube. UI systems like UMG (and the new UI for Unity) interest me greatly. I'm almost tempted to watch the VOD, but I don't want to get half way through and have 30 mins of it muted because of a false positive. Can anyone confirm that there's no silence in the VOD?

              No silence, VoD is okay(For few weeks, until twitch delete it >.>)

                  ok,
                  then we will have After Effects within UE...
                  Obviously we could load psd, eps and illustrator files
                  right?
                  if so I think that Epic has a lot of work to do...
