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"

PoseableMeshComponent using SkeletalMesh: Collision issue

Hello there!

I'm experiencing some troubles with a SkeletalMesh for which the UE4 defined collison shape works well only when I drag the SkeletalMesh itself into the world but not working when I drag the Blueprint which uses that mesh as a PoseableMeshComponent, which I need to make manual bone transformations.

Do you know any reason for this collision not happening with PoseableMeshComponent? Here above some screenshots of basic setup, UE4 version: 4.5.1

So,

To fix that I choose to use AnimationBlueprint. First because I can use the SkeletalMeshComponent within the classic BluePrint (so Collision is working) Also because, as stated in the documentation, AnimationBlueprint is anyway the right way to go for Bone manipulation. That said, I'm just wondering now which is the best place to handle things like sound logic. Indeed when the bone is moving then a sound is triggered but I can trigger it either in the classic Blueprint, which contains the pawn sensing, the audio components, the skeletal mesh and so on...or in the event graph of AnimationBlueprint. Both gives me the same expected result. Maybe is't better to do that in the classic Blueprint and let only "animation stuff" happens in AnimationBlueprint.

Problem solved.
