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"

Is it possible to trigger a particle emitter when a particle dies?


Sorry if this was asked before, but I'm not sure how to phrase my question correctly, either because I'm bad at English or because I'm a UE4 noob. Probably both.

I'm making a bubbles particle system. The particles (small sphere meshes) go up and increase in size during their life, and die. I would like to add another particle effect, a "popping" effect, when the bubbles die. I find it a bit boring if they just disappear like that. Is this possible?

Hello Lufkin,

There is a node inside cascade called Event Generator (and one named event reciever) With this you can emit another particle when your bubble dies.

Here is some more information: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Rendering/ParticleSystems/Reference/Modules/Event/index.html
