Hi I am creating a racing game and wanted to check a few possibilities before I continue.
I want to have two things happen for the game intro:
- A 5-4-3-2-1 countdown on screen (I have found this tutorial to do this Unreal Engine 4 Tutorial - Creating a Start Game Countdown - YouTube)
- I want to combine the HUD countdown with a vertical camera pan of the environment (the end coordinates of the intro camera pan would need to be the same as the coordinates of the game play camera).
Is it just a matter of triggering a matinee cinematic sequence at the start and altering the end keyframe camera coordinates to be the same as those of the player cam ?
Will it still be possible to layer over a HUD countdown on top of a cinematic scene or is there a better way to do this - for example can I bring in a png countdown sequence from After Effects and overlay this animation on top of the cinematic sequence ?
