2.8 - Beam Emitter with a Noise Module

An overview of the Effects Gallery example level.



The Beam TypeData allows you to create an effect that connects two points - you can either specify the Source and the Target point, or have them as Actors, or other Emitters. It is used often as a bullet trail effect in shooter type games. In this case, we use it as an electric arc, with the help of the Noise module, inside the Beam group.

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.
