How to animate a will-o'-the wisp (Irrlicht)

Hello guys, I have a problem:
I can’t find anything about how I can animate an will-o’-the wisp (I hope thats right).
I searched and searched But didn’t found anything. Nothing about blender or I don’t know maybe in ue4 itself.
So it schould look like this (sorry if it is ugly, I did it in a rush)

I would be so happy if you have any ideas. (Sorry for my bad english, I’m German)
Best regards, Sinaj :slight_smile:

I guess it’s just a moving particle emitter

As Raildex said, probably a particle emitter is best and then maybe a up/down movement in the actor itself via a timeline to add a little more variance.

Ok Thanks, I’ll try it :slight_smile:

Orbit module (yes, name is orbit but actually does a wobble afaik).

Basically offset based on an amplitude * sin(time) on specific axis
