    Snow Footprints with Blueprint?

    Is it possible to integrate a system that allows for when a character moves (on snow) - it leaves a footprint as well as changing the floor slightly with 100 percent blueprint?


    Would it work in a similar way to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_9MCLdCzXo (Uncharted 2 Snow)



    Thanks,

    Its doable.

    Actually you can make use of anim notifies + decals to do this. What you need to do is fire-off an event when your character's feet touch the ground - thats means two events( one for each foot). Within this event, you can do a trace to get the location where the touch occured and put a foot-print decal there.

    Another way is to simply spawn a particle effect when the feet touches ground - again using anim notify. But it wont be as accurate as the first method.

    Please read the docs on anim notifies. If I remember correctly there is a youtube video posted in Unreal engine channel which shows how to do this (the second method)

    I expected challenges - but I never thought they'd be so bad, so long, and so frequent.
