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 to record spawned objects from an spawner in sequence recorder?

Hello. Short: I have a Spawner which creates cubes with random sizes. And I want to make a video about these randomly spawned cubes. Problem: When I use sequence recorder, I have to choose an actor. I tried choosing the Spawner as an Actor, but it doesn't get recorded. What should I do? Do I even have to use the sequencer? Info: I have 10 spawners and every second one spawner makes one cube. I mean I don't need their keyframes. I just wanna record the simulation with a depth of field. native parent class: actor. but the cubes don't get recorded.

You'll need to specify an actor to record (could be some dummy actor within the vicinity of where your objects will spawn) and then toggle on "Record Nearby Spawned Actors". That should create a spawnable in sequencer for every spawned cube.

Is there are some special conditions that have to be meet? I'm spawning decal actors and they are not captured.

Found the reason, I was adding decal components and they just have to added to "Classes and Properties to Record" list.
