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"

One way I use to test Root Animation:

In the Anim Blueprint in the event graph place a "Event Blueprint Intialize Animation" fed into a "Montage Play" node.

In your Animation select your AnimMontage and make sure that root motion and translation are checked.

Lastly, Looking at your AnimMontage and set the animation to loop. You'll need to do this by selecting the small Root next to Preview and then select the long green Root bar under Create Default. This will set it up to loop. You'll also see an "X" next to the small Root bar to disable the loop.

Let me know if this works for you. If not I can help further.

Thank you!
