	var() float Time;
	var() EMaterialSequenceAction Action;
};
Material Material 
The material to fade in or display.

EMaterialSequenceAction Action 
Whether to crossfade to this material or to just display it.

Enums[edit]

EMaterialSequenceAction[edit]

MSA_ShowMaterial 
Just display this material.
MSA_FadeToMaterial 
Crossfade from the previous material to this material.

EMaterialSequenceTriggerActon[edit]

MSTA_Ignore 
Not triggerable.
MSTA_Reset 
Reset the MaterialSequence.
MSTA_Pause 
Toggle between stopping and playing the sequence.
MSTA_Stop

Methods[edit]

Inherited From Material[edit]

Reset ( ) 
Resets the MaterialSequence and restores the default value of Paused.
Trigger (Actor Other, Actor EventInstigator) 
Triggers the MaterialSequence according to the value of the Action property. (see EMaterialSequenceTriggerActon enum above)

Unfallzeuge: I just found out, that material-sequences only work on static meshes and NOT on brushes - (you'll see just a solid colour). Take care that the orientation of your polygons (of your mesh) is right, flip them or make a 2-sided material to show the material-sequence properly.

LionsPhil: Actually, if you get the camera reeeally close, it appears that the scaling goes all wrong in the game and you get many tiny repetitions of your texture (as if you'd set the scale to some very small number). Bizzarely, it's fine in the editor itself.

Fisholith: Solution! After playing around with the use of material sequences on BSP in a level, I found that if you scale them by x1024 they look exactly like a x1 scale normal texture. That is to say, whatever normal texture-scale you want a "Material Sequence" texture to appear at, (e.g. 0.5), just multiply that number by 1024, and use the resulting value to scale the material sequence texture (e.g. 0.5 * 1024 = 512). I hope this helps out. Take care everyone.
