The Quick Start ability allows the character to play a starting animation when the character initially starts to move. This ability will monitor the character’s input values and will automatically activate when the character starts to move.

Setup

  1. Select the + button in the ability list under the “Abilities” foldout of the Ultimate Character Locomotion component.
  2. Add the Quick Start ability. This ability should be positioned towards the bottom of the ability list so it does not prevent any other ability from starting.
