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 do I make objects disappear gradually during a matinee or animation, for example a rope becoming invisible when it passes a certain point?

I'm quite inexperienced but I'm trying to help myself visualise a working system of pulleys without actually having to build anything using a matinee. I know SolidWorks might work better but UE is more user-friendly. I've pretty much got everything I need working, I have all the various pieces moving up and down e.c.t but I want to use rope without having to do too much extra work. At the moment I'm trying to have the rope (The object) lead into an empty box which symbolises a winch but the rope doesn't have physics (nor do I need it to have physics) so it clips through the other side.

I want to have the rope disappear as it passes into the box, is there some gateway effect I can use during the matinee so the rope becomes invisible when it passes a certain designated point?

Thank you.
