UE4 Render Target Material

23 Jan 2018, 16:01

Hello,

I have a material that is a render target (remote camera, mini-map, etc) that I would like to display in a corner of my Noesis HUD. It looks like I cannot bind xaml Image Source directly to a material or texture in UE4. What is the preferred method for doing this in Noesis and UE4?

Thanks
Jake

Hi Jake,

We support Binding both Texture2D and TextureRenderTarget2D properties to be used in Bindings where an ImageSource is required. Take a look at the QuestLog sample. The Quest Blueprint has an Image property that is a Texture2D that is used in a Binding in MainWindow.xaml (look for "{Binding SelectedQuest.Image}".

What does your setup look like?

This is really great news! I totally missed the QuestLog example. FYI the list of bindable UE4 datatypes in the doc (https://github.com/Noesis/UE4Plugin) does not include Texture2D or TextureRenderTarget2D.

Thank you for the info!
Jake

You're right. I've just updated the README.

Let us know if you run into any problems.
