How to make a BSP brush invisible?
I am using BSP brushes as triggers for camera zones (think resident evil 1). Obviously these BSP brushes need to be invisible at runtime, and also not show in the perspective view in the editor (although still having the wireframe visible would be great when using the orthographic views)
I don't want to convert it to a blocking volume (at this stage) as i need to edit the vertices right up until the point the gameplay is finalised.
Is there any way of making them totally invisible but still generate overlap events... perhaps a totally invisible material?
Please could someone show me how to do this?

Going to answer my own question now!
Thanks to mindfane, I investigated Trigger Volumes.
I didn't realise that Trigger Volumes they can have their vertices modified in the same manner as brushes (I thought that we were stuck with the original shape)... so, for me at least, I no longer need to make brushes invisible, and Trigger Volumes give me exactly what I need!
Cheers mindfane! :)

While I do realize that this question is almost three years old now, I would just like to add extra help for those that had the same problem as me - make custom shaped collisions i Unreal.
While this is entirely possible to do in a 3D-modeling application, such as Autodesk maya, it is also possible by using addative and subtractive brushes in Unreal.
Just make sure to select all brushes before pressing the create static mesh in the brush settings panel in the details window.
