Description

There's a crash when "Play Quantized" is used on an Audio Component that was constructed via the functions "Create Sound 2D" or "Spawn Sound 2D" when the option 'Persist Across Level Transitions' is checked, due to GetWorld() returning null within the Play Quantized function.

Steps to Reproduce
  • In a Blueprint, call the function "Create Sound 2D." with an audible sound in the 'Sound' setting.
  • Expand the options on the "Create Sound 2D" function, and enable "Persist Across Level Transition." 
  • Drag off the 'Return Value' output of the "Create Sound 2D" function and connect it to a "Play Quantized" call
  • Drag off the 'In Clock Handle' input of "Play Quantized" and connect it to a "Create New Clock" call, and give it a name
  • Connect "Create New Clock"'s input to "World Quartz Subsystem"
  • Drag off the "Quartz Quantization Boundary" of "Play Quantized" and create a new Quantization Boundary object
  • Place your Blueprint in the level, and trigger its "Create Sound 2D" to "Play Quantized" function in PIE

 

Expected Result:

  • The sound plays at the requested quantization boundary

 

Actual Result:

  • The engine crashes
