  2. UMG Component Property Manipulation: Included within the plugin are functions that enable fine-tuned control over UMG component properties. Developers can directly access and modify properties such as size, color, visibility, and more within blueprints, allowing for intricate customization of UI elements.
  3. Dependency Management for UI Effects: Serving as a dependency management tool, the "UI Effect Function Library" assists in the development of plugin functionalities related to UI effects, streamlining the process of UI construction and ensuring seamless integration with other plugins.
  4. Code Reusability Across UI Plugins: This function library is instrumental in promoting code reuse among UI-focused plugins, enhancing development efficiency. By encapsulating common UI effect patterns into reusable functions, developers can avoid redundant coding efforts and concentrate on innovating unique plugin features.

In summary, the "UI Effect Function Library" is designed to empower developers with the tools needed to craft sophisticated and engaging UI effects in Unreal Engine projects. By simplifying the animation process with Sequencer and providing granular control over UMG components, this plugin is an essential asset for creating dynamic and visually appealing user interfaces. Its emphasis on code reusability and dependency management further streamlines the development workflow, making it an indispensable resource for any Unreal Engine developer focused on UI effect creation.
