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"

Attaching a particle emitter instead of a texture material

So I'm trying to make a particle emitter movie down a mesh and make the material follow, I'm really looking for the easiest way. In the picture you'll see the cubes have a blue colour that moves up/down the material. I was hoping someone could tell me how I can make the green particle effect replace that blue line? Sorry if it's badly explained I'm quite new to UE4.

Any help appreciated, thanks

Hmm hello Kyt, I dont think there is an easy solution for this. What I would do is make a thin high poly skeletal mesh that moves along the erosive/blue line. This is because you can attach particles to the surface/vertices of a skeletal mesh with the "skel vert/surf location" module inside cascade.

IF you make the skeletal mesh line move along with the blue erosive line, it should look very decent.

I hope this guides you a little towards the right goal.
