There is a work-around: I placed a get timeline and query 'Is Playing' without it ever being reached or connected to anything and suddenly my Timeline was working when called from the RepNotify function. This is a known issue that is currently under investigation UE Another possible workaround you could use would be to add a custom event to the play input exec of the timeline, then inside the function make a call to the custom event.
Hey guys, As Alexander Paschall mentioned on the thread JigglyToes linked, because Timelines are time dependent they cannot be called inside a function. In short latent functions do not work in other functions.
As previously mentioned it is possible to set the timeline up in the Event Graph with a custom event set to play it. Then inside the function or anywhere else required you can call the custom event rather than the timeline itself. Doug - I'm not sure if I was clear enough or perhaps I don't understand your response fully, so to clarify - I had a timeline in the event graph not inside a function. You're correct that something needs to feed into the input execution pin on the timeline.
This has been included in the bug report mentioned above. As mentioned, connecting a custom function to the timeline and then calling that function in the RepNotify function is the simplest solution while being easy to follow.

Found a tutorial on Youtube that's using them for functions and should give a little help with figuring them out. Timers can get quite unstable, they are referenced by text name, so if you change t hat name somewhere everything may get weird. Also all those places that you need change timer interval if you decide your tick needs be slower or faster. Instead I am using custom event dispatcher, that i call "pulse". I am placing it in player controller its easy to get reference, and pulse is local to client in multiplayer, so no syncing.
When pulse is ready i compare game time seconds to time when last pulse was called plus some delta time. I found out that calling pulse on 0. Originally posted by Nawrot View Post. I'd rather use event based design for pretty much everything; if you take the time to polish your code you can make it all event based, even in blueprint graphs. Downside is it takes some more brain effort, more planning. I do not trust timers, they were crashing my game quite badly back in 4.
And there is another reason: i use "game time seconds" this lets me pause game by setting time dilatation without worrying about all timers.
I just had idea to "transmit" time dilatation value and some boolean that tells everybody "it is time to pause" with pulse dispatcher. It goes to every actor that needs timed actions anyway. There is one more trick to all this, but its quite advanced: - in addition to dispatcher create "pulse" interface, that is called by dispatcher and is used as middle man.
This way all you need to do is add pulse component and interface to blueprints that need pulse. No more additional pulse code in all blueprints, just drag component and use it.
Yes it adds to code bloat, but its invisible to us, and actual blueprint graphs are much less messy.
Last edited by Nawrot ;AM.Sequencer Overview. Sequencer Editor Reference. Often times in film, you will have several people working on different facets of a scene at the same time.
Sequencer supports this type of workflow through the Subscenes Track which allows you to layer Level Sequences on top of each other to produce a final sequence. You may have an animator creating the animations for the sequence, while someone else works on the camera and another works on effects which are all part of the same sequence.
Doing so this way allows people to have their own working Level Sequence and work independently without altering content in other scenes. Inside your project in the Content Browser create 5 Level Sequence assets. Above, we created a folder called Sequences for organizational purposes and created our Level Sequence assets inside it. In this example, we created a MasterSequence which would hold all of our shots and be used to create the full cinematic sequence.
Need a refresher to working with Sequencer Transforms, see Working with Camera Cuts for more information. Click the Add Camera button to add a camera and then create a path to follow the movement of the character.
This makes it easier to see and work with others content without working inside it. The Subscene Track we added was for movement reference, if we leave it in it will affect the overall transform as seen below. The viewport is locked to the camera assigned in the Camera Cuts track so we are removing this for now so we can continue to work. In this sequence our FX artist is going to add effects each time the character walks so we need reference to the movement, similar to what we just did with the camera work.
Add an Event Track and add keys called FootStep each time the character steps on the ground. Above we added an Event called FootStep, then copied and pasted it each time the character walked.
While this particular effect could be accomplished by creating an Anim Notify as well, this demonstrates how an FX artist could use their own track to apply other types of effects for your scenes. When playing in the editor, you will see that the character walks forward and spawns an explosion with each step. By re-adding the Camera Cuts Track and pointing to the CameraActor, we determine which camera should be used for the scene.
The person working on the camera could continue to make modifications to the scene if they wanted such as adjusting the path of the camera movement. Using Subscenes is an efficient way of generating content when multiple people are involved as it allows those individuals to create there content without everyone working in the same Level Sequence.

Current Space.The Get Play Rate node returns the current playback rate of the input Timeline. The number is returned as a float value.
The Get Playback Position node returns the current playback position, or the current moment in time along the input Timeline. The Get Timeline Length node returns the total length of the input Timeline as a float value.
The Is Looping node returns a boolean value which will be true if the input Timeline is looping, false if it is not. The Is Playing node returns a boolean value which will be true if the input Timeline is currently playing, false if it is not. The Is Reversing node returns a boolean value which will be true if the input Timeline is currently reversing or playing in reversefalse if it is not.
The Play node tells the input Timeline to begin playing from the current playback position. The Play from Start node tells the input Timeline to begin playing from the start of the Timeline. The Reverse node tells the input Timeline to begin reversing playing in reverse from the current playback position. The Reverse from End node tells the input Timeline to begin reversing playing in reverse from the end of the Timeline.
The Set Looping node takes in an input Timeline and a boolean value. It sets the Timeline's Looping property to the value of the boolean.
The Set New Time node takes in an input Timeline and a float value. It sets the Timeline's New Time property to the value of the float. The Set Play Rate node takes in an input Timeline and a float value. It sets the Timeline's Play Rate property to the value of the float.
The Set Playback Position node takes in an input Timeline, a float value, and a boolean. It jumps the Timeline's Playback Position property to the value of the float. If there are any event tracks within the Timeline, the value of the Boolean is used to determine if they will fire or not. This allows you to switch between playing the full Timeline length and just playing to the last keyframe.

Hello, I'm new to Unreal Engine. I have been tinkering with blueprints and try to see what I can do, however I have a problem. My goal is to open a door using RInterp to give it a little door-opening animation. I couldn't get it to work, the door just changes the rotation from one position to another.
Here's a screen shot of my blueprint. Hope I can get some help from the community, thanks! Thank you for the link, it looks like it is more complicated than what I want to do, will play around with it to gain more experience.
You need to put a constant pulse into the rotation for the RInterp to continue to move.Life is Strange Alternate Realities
You will probably also need to replace the 'time take to rotate' with 'get world delta seconds'. With that changed the current setup would increase the rotation based on what you have as the interp speed but only a fraction of it.
If you put a loop that goes through the rotation until the door reaches the open rotation and then cancel. That would make it work. Here is that setup. Thank you for your reply, I set up mine somewhat similar to your picture and then I added a while loop, however I keep getting infinite loop error.
Here is my set up:. My logic is that, if the current door rotation is not equal to where I want it to be, then keep rotating until they equal, then the loop stops. Because you have a while loop and delay with the manual loop is what is causing the infinite loop. Now that I understand exactly what you are trying to achieve, a timeline is the way to go.
Like tendos reply below. Here are a few screenshots. Also if this is in another blueprint other than the player character then you will need to enable input so the blueprint is allowed to use the key X.
Inside the timeline is a simple float track from 0 to 90 over 2 seconds with auto smoothing. DoorMesh StaticMesh type : The door mesh that will be rotating.
I used a simple float curve with linear interpolation with 2 keys: 1 Time: 0, Value: 02 Time: 2, Value: 1. This will play a fairly smooth animation. There are 2 custom events that stop each other's animations. This is needed for the animations in order not to get messed up with each other you can try without them to see what I'm talking about. Method - Simple animation using timeline This one is the easiest and fastest, so I recommend using this.
This time in the timeline, though, you have to set the value to 90 representing the degrees the door should rotate also make it negative to have it rotate in the other directionand the duration of the timeline is how much time it takes for the door to reach its target rotation.
Thank you for your answer, on the first method you mentioned above, I couldn't find any of the red nodes as well as Rotation node so can you elaborate on that a little bit more?

Hey guys, I'm trying to get a basic lift to transition smoothly between floors.
I was originally using the Move Component node and grabbing the root Scene component from my lift BP to move the lift, and although it seemed to work, parts of the root's child components kept stuttering as the lift moved between floors.
I'm assuming this is just a bug, or something to do with the child components slightly lagging behind the parent, but I can't be sure. Anyway, for the past few hours I've been trying to use the Set Actor Location node to move the whole lift to the desired floor location.
This works, however the movement speed and interpolation between floors seems inconsistent and sometimes even gets stuck on some floors. I've looked at my output log and printed the timeline float to screen but I can't see anything wrong.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening, or propose an alternative way to do this? Tags: move to locationtimelinevector.
Alternative 1: use "MoveComponentTo" node with "ease in" "ease out" both to true Alternative 2: use "SetActorLocation" with "finterp to" node which i think it can give you output float like in your timeline not constant move speed 3: there are more problems with lifts which engine cant deal with Comment Post Cancel.
