Visualize Input Event Plugin. This Plugin visualizes Input Events such as Key Presses, Mouse Clicks and Game pad Events from the Editor, as well as the Gameplay Viewport. The functionality is useful specially if you are making learning videos or tutorials and want the viewers of the videos to see what Keyboard-Key you pressed or which Mouse-Button you clicked which Game pad Event was fired. The functionality of the plugin is extensively configurable through its settings saved in a config INI file.


I really appreciate that you download the plugin and test it if it fits your needs. If you experience any problem or missing functionality, please don't hesitate to contact me directly and tell me about your urge. On the other hand - if you are comfortable with the extension, and you are confident with its features and functionality, it would of course be great if you could give me a short feedback as well and / or drop a comment on the Plugin-Page of the EPIC Marketplace. Any feedback is really welcome.
