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 animate an object in matinee & blueprints?


Is there any way to do animation like the legacy system in Unity? Like, literally the only thing you gotta do in Unity is having the animation component attached (with clips), get a reference to it, and call Play(theanimationclip) on it. I really loved that, and I really hope this is possible in Unreal.

If it is possible, could anyone explain how to do it in blueprints? :)

Hi Wrekk,

You can either using our Matinee Animation Tool or use Blueprints to drive animation. We have tons of documentation that you can reference for this. Also take a look through the Content Examples that you can download from the Launcher to see some of this in action.

Here is info on using our Matinee Animation Tool:


And here is some info on using Blueprints to drive object movement:

Another great place to start is our Wiki tutorials.


I hope it helps, TJ
