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"

How to make animated mannequin disappear after cinematic finishes and have player pick up where it left off

Is there a way to make an animated mannequin disappear after the cinematic finishes through matinees? I haven't had much luck finding any resources on the topic.

Is it possible to have the player pick up where it leaves off? Would I need to make blueprints to get the desired effect for either scenario?

Example of said cinematic:

Camera pans up path, pass mannequin walking up path, camera fades to player controlled character where mannequin leaves off.

What i did was play the matinee sequence then delayed to x amount time which would be the duration of the matinee and then spawned the third person character blueprint at the location of the actor used in the matinee sequence by getting the reference of that actor and getting its location. I then possessed that newly spawned character and destroyed the one used in the matinee sequence as well as the matinee sequence itself.
