Developer Notes

Note that Cull distance volumes only work on components with Static mobility, but the component in the repro has Movable mobility, so you have to fix that first.

===============
REPRO STEPS:             
1.  Open the QAGame Editor
2.  Add a Cull Distance Volume to the world
3.  In the details on the Cull Distance Volume, set Element 0's Size to 10000
4.  Set Element 0's Cull Distance to 1
5.  Set Element 1's Cull Distance to 10
6.  Check on Enabled
7.  Add BP_MeshTransformation
8.  Move and scale the volume around the BP
9.  PIE
  
RESULTS: BP remains and any meshes within are removed
EXPECTED: BP is also removed
 
ENVIRONMENT:

Steps to Reproduce

1.  Create a new Third Person Template BP project or open existing one.
2.  Add a Cull Distance Volume to the world and place around Third Person BP
3.  In the details on the Cull Distance Volume, set Element 0's Size to 10000
4.  Set Element 0's Cull Distance to 1
5.  Set Element 1's Cull Distance to 10
6.  Check on Enabled
7.  Add BP_MeshTransformation
8.  Move and scale the volume around the BP
9.  PIE
  
RESULTS: No Culling occurs
EXPECTED: BP and/or Skeletal Meshes are Culled
