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"

Changing USkeletalMeshComponent transform during ragdoll simulation

Hi!

My goal is to blend from ragdoll to wake up animation. In order to achieve that, I move the skeletal mesh and capsule to apropriate transform (resulting from ragdoll), start the wake up montage and blend from physics to animation.

It has been working well in 4.4. In 4.5, however, setting USkeletalMeshComponent transform immediately affects transforms of all simulating bones. I can't see a way to change this behaviour without changing engine code. I believe that it was introduced in commit https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/commit/541d2cabd2af95dbaf113057e4919c00c08164af.

Maybe I'm missing something, so I'd like to ask if there is a way to set only skeletal mesh position without affecting dynamic bones. If that's not the case, how should I deal with my problem now?

I'll answer to myself in case anyone has the same problem. I've just created custom SkeletalMeshComponent class and override OnUpdateTransform, so I can control transform updates of dynamic bones.
