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"

Custom Animations in Third Person Example File

Hello again everyone. I've been messing around in UE and have been playing around with the Third Person Example. I've imported a custom mesh (With a skeleton) and figured out how to switch out the demo character and switch him with my skelmesh. However, the mesh is un-animated in-game. I have the animations that I need for my skelmesh, but I can't find where I'd set the animations. I've found a pop-up in BP that says "Use Animation Blueprint" or "Use Animation Asset" - But I can't find this elusive Animation Blueprint anywhere.

Hey Ryan,

Definitely check out the wiki section on Anim Blueprints, it covers a lot and will illustrate how to create add animations to your character.

Also towards the end of the First Person Shooter tutorial, it walks you throw implementing some animations for a FPS style game (not quite 3rd Person as you are looking for, but will show you the process of getting stuff in and hooked up).

Cheers! It's such a powerful system (UE4) but a lot to get your head around when moving from another engine! It's already totally worth it though!
