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"

Cool explosion effect?

I want to get an effect when you beat a boss that makes the camera blur and your ears ring, like blowing up vehicles in unreal tournament 3.

If you included sound for the ringing that would be great.

For the ear ringing... i would, until you can make you own sound that you could package in your game, grab a similar sound by using a "youtube -> mp3" website, then using Audacity to make the mp3 a wav, then import that into UE4 and build a sound cue out of it.

For the explosion effect, i'd start by going into the content examples, finding an explosion, and altering it. It'll teach you how to mess w/ particles and you might be able to tweak it into something you can use.

Then I think you'd add all of that into the Boss Actor's Blueprint. The Explosion Particle effect would be added to the components, set "auto activate" to off, and then when he's defeated it would turn on and run once. Same with the sound.

I think! I'm kind of new at this too, just trying to be helpful!

Thanks! Still looking for the camera blur though.

I'd do some tutorials on post processes. One would be the "swimmable water" tutorial, because it adds a blue hue to the screen and a sound effect I think. But yeah Post Process is how you'd do that. Not sure specifically but that's where i'd look.
