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"

4* 10 - 20 particles or meshes following path whilst having random lifetime

I'm trying to think of a way to make 10 or 20 meshes follow a path, and give them a random lifetime (like the particle lifetime). Would anyone have an idea on how to approach this? I read mesh particles won't work with paths, but they would give me exactly what i need fading-out wise.

Hallo B!

The fade in/out could also be controlled by a blueprint controlling a material instance. that would probably be the cheapest way to go. you could use particles but thats basically just a middle-man/surrogate for the blueprints. optimization/drawcall wise not much would change.

Blueprints to follow along a path/spline should be fine :)
