Coin 4.25 BP Radial Scan FX 4.25

Radial Scan FX
Версия Unreal Engine
4.25

What is it?
Radial Scan FX is a highly customizable scanning ring shader, prepped and ready for easy integration into your game. With a few tweaks, you can create an entire game mechanic using just the shader.

The scan effect is projected onto the world using deferred decals, meaning you can layer many Radial Scans on top of each other at once without impacting performance.

How do I spawn it?
Much like a particle effect, you can attach the BP_RadialScanComponent to any actor and fire the Spawn Radial Scan Effect function to begin the scan. Alternatively, you can drop in a BP_RadialScanActor and fire the Begin Radial Scan function. Be aware that the actor will die upon completion.

How do I customize it?
To customize the way it spawns, moves and dies: Adjust the settings on the scan component
To customize the look of the scan effect: Adjust the material instance settings.

How do I make it project on everything?
Make sure that Receives Decals is enabled on every mesh you want the effect to cast on.
