Enabling or Disabling Components – Unity3D Bolt Micro-Tutorial

This entry is part of a series of tips I am creating as I make my game.

What we need: A GameObject with a component we want to disable (in this case, an Animator component)

Input: A GameObject.

Output: The GameObject, but now the component is disabled.

Summary: This tutorial shows you how to disable a component on a GameObject in Bolt.
