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"

Hello invesar,

Are you attempting to have this as an animated movie within your game like a cutscene or a title?

Or do you want 3 Dimensional Ribbon like objects to animate and fly around in a world space?

Thanks,

Andrew Hurley

Hey MATAN,

If you wanted something like a ribbon to animate across the screen in real-time you could set it to move to a location across a 'Timeline' within blueprints. This gives you greater control than matinee since you will be animating along a curve.

Take a look at our sample 'Content Examples' project which utilizes timelines in various ways to animate and move objects for your game.

Timeline Animation

Let me know if you need help figuring out how to animate along a timeline.

Cheers,

Andrew Hurley
