Suitable for any type of project, Actor Waypoints

quickly get actors in your scene

moving for simple motion or pre-visualization. This is the blueprint

system for you if you find yourself thinking, "I wish I had a

simple way to quickly get actors moving in my level with basic event

hooks to see how it looks."


Drag and drop target points into your scene, snap a waypoint

component onto each of your movable actors, and add waypoints to each by

selecting target points by name or selecting them directly in the level.

Accept the default or set the time or speed each actor will take from

waypoint to waypoint. Enable looping to make an actor continue around

waypoints indefinitely.


To see travel lines, snap the waypoint visualizer component onto your

actor and customize line color, duration, and thickness. The waypoint

visualizer provides editable line colors for different stages of each

actor's movement (move to first waypoint, waypoint to waypoint, and

loop) and draws them in the level during play.


Do anything enabled by blueprints as actors reach travel by using

waypoint change and movement complete events (requires blueprinting, but

entirely optional).
