How do I use Niagara's timeline in the level?

I’m using a Niagara system where I want to loop only a certain part of the timeline instead of playing it from the beginning. It actually takes some time until the simulation goes to the point where I’m satisfied, so when I play it in the level it always plays from the beginning and I need the beginning to “skip”.

This is not a problem while I’m in the Niagara Editor, I can just set the playback to range from a certain start and end, but I can’t seem to find a way to make this work the same in the level. It always starts the simulation from the beginning.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hey I found this solution I hope it will be useful for you.
Time indicates where in the timeline you want to go.

Inspired by the other answer but fixes many bugs and lag issues (probably can be improved)


Little tip to make the particles go in reverse without the random being redetermined and looking buggy
