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"

I believe this is what you'll want to do. Set the material for the BP Component, that is the character's skeletal mesh. Find out which index number the material for his face is set to and put that in there under Element Index. Next, select the material you want it to change to.

I put in a delay, for example, that after a half second it will change to a new material, then delay half a second again, and loop back through.alt text
