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"

Sequencer and Spline Actors

I want to make a very simple animation with some spline actors using Sequencer, but I've hit a snag; they don't animate in-game. In the editor, the actors all animate perfectly as I want them to.

I know that it the animation "works" in-game, due to the bug where sequencer-animated actors will be left at their final animation position instead of their original position when going back to the engine. So it is simply that the animation is not rendered at run-time.

Is there any way I can get the desired effect without having to make separate static meshes for every different-looking root?

The animation: Before

  • on this. Trying to figure out a hackaround to key spline points in sequencer. So far I've created a custom spline mesh actor with components that act as a start and end point that I can key, but even that doesn't update in the viewport until I start simulating.

Is it just the spline actors that aren't animating in-game? Do you have other actors that are animating?

Can you send a screenshot of what you're sequencer tracks look like?

I just attached a sphere to a spline actor that has its transform animated and the sphere moves as I expect. So maybe your setup is different.

The spline actors are the only ones not animating. Everything else does.

And I am not trying to animate an object along a spline path btw. The roots themselves are spline blueprint actors (so that I can easily create different roots).

did you ever find a solution for this?
