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"

Setup blueprint to work in Sequencer

Hello everyone, I want to make a bone drive a material parameter so I created an Animation Blueprint that looks like this:

Now when the bone moves in Y my character switches among 7 textures (it is for a facial animation)

My problems are:

a) when I drag the animation blueprint into Sequencer, UE crashes

b) I don't know how to setup the blueprint so that the bone will ALWAYS control this material, no matter what animation is being played, because I can't go creating 70 animation blueprints for each imported animation, right?

I think it all sums up to a 2 questions:

  1. What is the proper way to setup an Animation Blueprint for an Skeletal Mesh to be played in a Sequence of 70 shots, taking into account that I will be importing 70 different animations for this character and each of them should control the material parameter I created?

  2. What is the proper way to load Animation Blueprints into Sequencer? So far I only was able to bring them as Actors but this means they will be appearing in every shhot which I don't want. I know I can drag them down below the ground to hide them but I think it is not so convenient.

This is the first time I work with Animation blueprints and what I achieved was thanks to some videos and comments here, but nothing aimed exactly to what I need to do, so I would really appreciate some guidance. Btw this is for cinematics so I don't care about how expensive the setup could be.

Thanks in advance!
