Event Node

This topic references tools and features that are legacy. If you want to use legacy tools in Lumberyard Editor, disable the CryEntity Removal gem using the Project Configurator or the command line. To learn more about legacy features, see the Amazon Lumberyard Legacy Reference.

An event node is used to trigger and send values to Flow Graph. It is used in tandem with a TrackEvent Flow Graph node. Track Events are created using the Edit Events window located in the context menu for a Sequence node or Director node. To trigger a Track Event, use an Event node and create a keyframe. When this key is played, the event is triggered.

These track view events will appear as Flow Graph node outputs on TrackEvent Flow Graph nodes that points to the corresponding sequence.

To add an Event node in the Track View editor

  1. In the Track View editor, right-click either the sequence (top node) or the Director node in the tree as applicable, and then click Add Event.

  2. Click the Track Event track under the Event node, then double-click to position it on it's highlighted row in the timeline, click the green marker, then under Key Properties, enter a value for Value. To add track view events, choose Edit Events in the Sequence or Director context menus to add, remove, or edit track view events.
