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"

2 ways maybe 3 without trying it myself. Theory 1 particle editor orbit and lock axis keep init location at 0 0 0 and put the orbit at the same as the init loc

Theory 2 blueprint with make transform with make vector for the data 0 and 360 for rotation and keep the transforms the same spawn emitter or actor class so the blueprint controls it

Theory 3 not sure if matinee is the same but that would be the 3rd way

I could be wrong but Id go in one of those directions depending on how much process power your trying to save.

Hey EternalSilence -

Theory 2 would look something like this. You would need to add a non-rendering shape or Scene component as the root to allow you to offset the particle system.

Hi thx you both for your answer i made this blueprint it's perfect. I just connect particle actor directly to the world rotation and remove the break node.
