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"

"Play Animation" BP node. Need looping, playrate, start position functionality?

Hi there,

I'm in need of some functionality with the "Play Animation" node in my BP graph. The node doesn't have the capability to change the play rate, reverse or change the start position of the animation and I'd like it to.

I basically have a door that has an Open and Close animation. If the door is in-progress being opened and needs to be closed, reverse play the animation until the beginning. Only play the Close animation if the Open animation has completely finished. There are 100's of 'doors' I'd like to do this on. So ideally I'd be able to do it with only importing the animations and then setting a list of available skeletal meshes.

I'm hesitant to get into BlendTrees or AnimMontages, etc. because it seems a little over complicated to go that far.

Should I look at adding the same loop/rate/position functionality to the Play Animation node in C++ or is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks, John!
