    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

The Actor Portrait plugin allows you to display any actor as a 3D element in your UI! This is done by keeping a separete world where the actor is updated and rendered to a custom UI element.


This is abstracted away in C++, the only thing you need to do is drag the Actor Portrait UMG element into your designer, as you would with any other UI element.
