When adding the Start Matinee Camera Shake node to a blueprint and then playing the project, the editor crashes. When regression testing in 4.26 however, I noticed that compiling the Third Person Character failed with an error that said "This blueprint (self) is not a PlayerCameraManager, therefore 'Target' must have a connection." No such error appeared when compiling the blueprint in 4.27, so that may be the cause of the crash since the Start Matinee Camera Shake node doesn't have a valid Player Camera Manager object input into it.


Tested in //UE4/Release-4.26 @ CL 15973114 and this did not occur, so marking as a Regression.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a Third Person template project
  2. Open the Third Person Character BP
  3. Add an Event Begin Play node to the Event Graph
  4. Connect a Start Matinee Camera Shake node to the Event Begin Play node
  5. Compile the blueprint
  6. Press Play


The editor crashes
