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"

Character disappears during sequences

Hi,

I'm working on sequences with unreal 4.20 and until not so long ago, I was using a mesh only copy of my main character, in order to avoid some conflictual bugs between my main character animation blueprint and the animation played by the sequencer.

But recently I saw this tutorial, and then I decided to use my main character in my sequences so I could do some sweet transitions between my sequences and my game. (See the last God of War as a reference)

So I updated my sequences in my game by replacing the mesh only copy with the real character, and now, in some of my sequences my main character inexplicably disappear (the boolean Hidden in game on the mesh turn to true) for a few seconds. The instant when he disappears and the duration of the disappearance is different between two game sessions. And I can't find the cause of this behavior.

If you have some clues about this situation, I would be glad to hear them !

Have a nice day,

Somegemeto

I found it, it was a collision problem, my character was going through a collision which blocked visibility trace responses during the sequence so it maked him disappear.

Hope this will help someone else in the future !

Is it related to the Bounds Scale, in the Rendering properties of the object? I've found that sometimes I have to crank that value to like 10...
