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"

Class Blueprint Timeline/Actor/Static Mesh issue

Hello,

I have multiple similar doors in this level which I need to both open at the same time when a button is pushed. I was building them using multiple matinee's and triggers in the layer BP when it was suggested I make a Class BP for the door.

I soon found out that matinee's cannot be referenced in a Class BP so I had to do a timeline for it. I followed along the Unreal Tutorial (by the awesome Unreal people) and ran into an issue. I cannot link the individual door component to the Set Actor Location function.

These are the components for reference:

The door has multiple static meshes, however I only want the "right door" and "left door" to slide on the X axis such as I've accomplished using the matinee system and a trigger box. Example here: link text

I've got many doors and elevator systems along this level and it would be greatly useful to be able to class BP them instead of choking up the level bp with matinee references.

NOTE: I do not need the elevator (shown in video) to coincide with the door open. That is being taken care of elsewhere and wouldn't be a good fit for the Class BP.

Currently using UE 4.6.1
