2.5 - Ribbon Trails Streaming from Other Particles

An overview of the Effects Gallery example level.



The Ribbon TypeData allows you to create trails, which are very useful in all kinds of projectile-based effects. To make them work, you generally need at least 2 particle Emitters:

  • One particle Emitter that emits the source particles (from which the ribbons will spawn) - note that these cannot be GPU particles.

  • One particle Emitter that has a Ribbon TypeData module and a Source module (located in the Trail group) to define which Emitter will be used as the source.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
