Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Timeline animated BP, within other BP

Hey guys!

I'm completely new to the UE4 universe, and I can't solve the logic behind this: First of all I want to say that I've searched everywhere about how to do this before asking here, so sorry if the question is not very bright.

I have a Class Blueprint with an elevator door mesh, animated with a timeline to open and close (reverse), triggered by a custom "Opendoor"/"Closedoor" event.

I want to place this inside the elevator box Class Blueprint and play the timeline when I hit the input on a box trigger.

I've managed to place the Door BP as a childactor inside the Elevator BP, but I can't figure out how (and even if it's possible) to play the timeline animation somehow.

Any tips and orientation is more than welcome, and I apologize if I'm completely off track! :)

Hey PabloCo-

I want to make sure I understand what your setup is to help give you a few ideas. You have two blueprints (elevator door and elevator box) and you are trying to call the elevator door blueprint timeline from a box trigger that is inside the elevator box blueprint? If my understanding is incorrect let me know how you have the elevator setup. If possible a screenshot of your blueprints would also be helpful.
