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"

(Quick Question) OnClick Matinee Play


I'd like to know how to make a Matinee play when I aim the Crosshair then click on the specific mesh in the third person template, like in the GIF down below. I know this is very vague so I'll be answering any questions you may need.

Line Trace is your saver, it scans via collision system if there something in the way of specific line (for example, from you POV to point ahead of POV). From hit data you can get Actor object and from there you can call some function in it, like open door.


If you want to animate something on level Matinee seems quite cave man way of doing it as it made for cutscenes, most optimal way is to make animated mesh, alternatively use blueprint timelines.
