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"

You need a particle emitter, and a skeletal mesh with two sockets. Then use the Set Trail Source data node to assign the trail to the sockets. The trail variable is a particle emitter component, added to a weapon blueprint, with an assigned weapon trail effect/emitter.

Or you can use the play emitter notify directly inside an animation, but this needs more manual fine tuning for each animation.

The free Infinity Effects package from the marketplace contains weapon trails.

Seems like a animtrail particle emitter would be best. Here is a basic tutorial on them Linked below.
