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 create a sword slash particle effect?

Hi, i'm new to particle effects in general and I want to find out how this sword slash particle effect is made.
Pretty much like in these videos:
The "sword slash" effect is shown when the player hits the enemy with the sword (not the animtrails).
If anyone could give me a push in the right direction I would be very grateful!

You will need to learn how to use UE4's Cascade or Niagara particle systems.

Here you can see a sped up version on how to create something like it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQDwhJ-zUC8

The lazy way would probably be to purchase a pack on the marketplace.
