Setting Up Character Movement in Blueprints

This "How To" series covers all the steps needed to create a fully playable and animated character through Blueprints. By the end of this How To series, you will have a character that can Walk, Run, Crouch and Crouch Walk, Go Prone, Jump from a stationary standing position, or Jump while moving.

For an example of the finished product, click the video sample below.

For this series, we are using the Animation Starter Pack, which is available for free on the Marketplace, as it contains several animations that can be used to create character movement. Once you have downloaded the Animation Pack, you can add the pack to an existing project (preferably a New Blank Project) via the Add to project button in the Launcher then specifying which project you want to add the assets to.

To get started, follow the steps below.
