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"

Add variables to Timeline?

Hi all,

Does anyone know if there is a way to add variables to a timeline? I've captured the scale of an actor at its full size, then set it to 0 on play, and I'm trying to add the objects scale size to a timeline to it looks smooth, but can't figure how to add them into it... any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.16

Cant do that. However why dont you simply make your timeline go from 0-1 and Multiply the Result that comes out by your Size variable =)

Whoa Thanks for the fast reply Nacht!

I'm not really sure how to do that, but could it still have a smooth effect like I was aiming for?

EDIT : Just added a few float values, and smoothed it out, great suggestion!

Thank you!

If your timeline runs from 0 to 1 you can make a Lerp with two values: a = your Variable1 and b = yourVariable2. Then simply plug your timeline outcome into the Lerp alpha slot to make it animate between a (= 0) and b (= 1). Hope that helps.
