Make a door close on a timer


I don’t have much experience with blueprint scripting, and I would like to learn more. I want to try to make a door that closes shut on a timer when a player for example enters a trigger-box or so.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance,


This tutorial teaches pretty much exactly what you are asking for:

Took a look at it, and it’s very informative and good. I’m going to go through it, however I don’t exactly know how to make it open on a timer. I could use help on that, as I would like to learn. Is it documented anywhere?

did you try adding a delay node?

No, I am not entirely sure where to place it, but I could try and see if I can get it to work!

Lets say you want to wait 5 seconds before the door opens. you would add a (delay) node and connect it to your matinee node and set it from 0.2 to 5.But that will just make it open after 5 seconds.

I managed to fix it. Thanks a lot guys!
