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"

Honestly, for something like that I'd go for a dedicated modelling program + After Effects. Make into a video and play it in the engine.

Check out this channel for tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/user/videocopilot/videos

It can be done in the engine but I feel it's going to be at least an order of magnitude harder. Pick your tools and battles right.

Then you can use matinee for 3d or UMG for 2d.

UMG allows you for handling and animating the user interface. You could animate a logo coming together if you prepare the elements in advance, include text, you can also use materials.

Here's a primer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4QvCXO9XaQ

also, can't recommend this gentleman enough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWBoZdC7d8c

You might not be find an in-depth tutorial about creating animated logos as the UMG designer is not really meant for that. That does not mean it cannot be done, though.

For a simple logo text coming together letter by letter, you would prepare a text block for every letter and slide it into position by shifting it in the canvas panel.

I'd be happy to chip in if you briefly describe what you want to achieve.
