    Asset Pack
    This product contains an assortment of Unreal Engine assets which can be imported into a pre-existing project of your choice.

This asset adds transform gizmos to your project. You can change the location, rotation and scale of static mesh actors at runtime by convenient mouse interaction. This works in PIE and packaged builds and does not use UE4 editor code. Editing is simple and feels similar to the gizmos found in the editor.
