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"

Cutscenes can be done within the engine with Matinee (search the unrealengine youtube channel for a tutorial)/

But there are many ways around this.

You can move them on the first frame (eventBeginPlay) way far off into space and then move them back. You can create a level with a empty/mostly empty gamemode just for the cutscene You can simply Cast:;GetPlayerCharacter(yourCharacterBPName) and then off the blue pin type in "UnPosess" so that your no longer in control of the character then one your cutscene is over you can "Posess"

You can also do a respawn setup like this and just kill your player first http://blueprintue.com/blueprint/hhmzjj8v/

Hope this helps Don't forget to accept an answer that best clears your question up or answers it so when the community finds your question in the future via search/google they know exactly what you did to fix it/get it going.

Set your character's Visibility to false at Begin Play. Then make it true once matinee is over.
