Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Accessing the Vertex position of a skeletal mesh

Hi,

I want to access the vertices of an skeletal mesh and manipulate them but I cannot find anything useful under Mesh->SkeletalMesh . the point is that I want the position of each vector in the world, but for a skeletal mesh that is moving and animating.

something like what is in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7BqwYKU-H0&list=UUBc38LaldK4qi1V-g_DJPyA

I believe this is done doing some of the particle system features and not directly through game code but you can access a mesh's vertices by using this function as far as I know.

 SkeletalMesh->GetImportedResource()->LODModels[0]->GetVertices(VertexArray);

Sadly this method only works in Editor, but not in Builds.
