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"

Mesh/Actor to dissolve in particles?

I am trying to dissolve a mesh or actor within the scene into multiple parts and reassemble itself again somewhere else.

I know how to destroy a mesh into chunks with APEX physics. But I have no Idea how to reverse the destruction or how to animate those chunks to go a certain path and then reassemble themselves into one mesh again.

I can maybe do this by reversing time for the destructing mesh and move it, but that's a lot of work and may look weird.

I am trying to get an effect something like Halo 4 promethean death, where a character dissolves into particles.

Another way of doing this is to have a dissolve material on my mesh and attach a particle to it, but that's not going to look perfect.

So i'm looking for a not so "hacky" way of breaking a mesh apart into chunks, to animate them so they go a certain path (or manipulate them with physics), and then reassemble itself into one mesh again. Is this possible and how can I do this.

I am new to UE4 with particles and from origin am an artist, so I don't have any C++ experience or a lot of BP experience.

Any help would be appreciated!
