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"

Matinee Toggle Particle Best Pratices

I have a particle I want to trigger in the matinee I have so when the player gets to a certain area, the particle triggers. Its working fine but I was wondering if this is the "correct" way to go about it? Maybe an easier way, I've been reading about "event tracks" in the matinee so maybe that? Check out the code below.

Here is the matineee

Here is the BP

So like I said, its working fine, I was just wondering if this is the "professional" way or perhaps I might run into memory issues later if I have a lot of these triggered at the same time.

1 answer: sort voted first

I'm not sure how noticable the performance cost would be but it would be better to activate/deactivate the particle system instead of setting visibility i think. So yeah, use the event track instead.
