From Epic Wiki


In this tutorial you will create the glowing progress bar material and attach it to third-person character, using it as a health indicator.

Horizontal version of the glowing bar

Some of the features and techniques discussed:

  • No UMG used
  • Progress bar material is in high dynamic range (HDR), so it can glow
  • The tutorial covers both horizontal and vertical progress bar versions
  • Progress bar changes color with its value, which is updated via Blueprints
  • Progress bar exists in the world space, so it can be used very well for various holographic UIs
  • Using custom material depth, we make sure that the bar does not get occluded by other surfaces
