Getting Started With Smooth Sync


What Smooth Sync Does

Provides simple, drop-in Syncing of transforms Smoothly across the network using customizable interpolation and extrapolation.

Owned Actors: Sends transform from owner to non-owners.

Unowned Actors: Sends transform from from server to clients.


Works with physics Actors and non-physics Actors. Dedicated and Listen servers.


Smooth Sync differs from Unreal's Replicate Movement in two key ways:

1) Using custom interpolation and extrapolation, Smooth Sync can be set to your game's specific needs.

2) Optionally allow clients to determine the position of any Actor. This can remove the need for client side prediction.
