Player health with an animated heart beat in umg

I’m building a hud for a first person shooter.
Everything is kind of working but i’d like the player’s health to be represented by a kind of of animated heart beat that you see in some of shooter games out there.
I know i can use animations and timelines in umg to do things link change the opacity of a button, etc. but wasn’t sure what umg element eg. image
to use to try and accomplish what i’m after.


For something simple:

  • create a white heart with alpha
  • animate the Image’s colour and scale
  • speed the animation up as the health goes down

Might look convincing enough.
