Adjustment is made by moving manipulators directly in the viewport. You can immediately see how long and at what speed the object will move on the specified sections of the spline. More than 80 parameters can be used for a very different settings. Which includes rotations, delays, interactions with triggers, moving exactly over surfaces, tracking other objects (for an example for applying to camera), connecting several Handy Movers to each other, etc. You can also control from blueprints and subscribe to the tool's events for custom reactions.

Most settings can work at the same time and provide a very variable use. Saves a lot of time.

Important/Additional Notes:

  • Set Transform Mobility to Movable for the attached actor
  • Pre-install a standard UE template "ThirdPerson" in the project so that examples with characters work in the example map
  • If you want to purchase this instrument ONLY to use it in a sequencer, then be sure to read the answer about this here or in the discord. Use with a sequencer is NOT complete due to technical limitations
