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"

Why is Particles.SpriteSize in Niagara not a float?

I was following this tutorial: UE4 - Tutorial - Niagara Mesh Particles

At 4:30 the person was changing the Particles.SpriteSize in the Niagara Emitter Editor. (Shown in picture 1.)

However if I open the default ThirdPerson project on my PC, the Particles.SpriteSize isn't a float. It's a vector2D. (See picture 2.)

Is it possible to make the variable a float? I can't find a solution for this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Vector2Ds contain two floats for the X and Y value. It's basically the same, but like this you only have one variable for both values. In Blueprints you can 'break' a Vector2D and access both float values.

I'll give it a try! Thank you very much!

(I didn't know how to do it, but with your explanation: Break Vector 2D)
