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"

How to make character move when side stepping.

Hello all!

I am using UE4.6 and have been following this tutorial: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Gameplay/HowTo/CharacterMovement/Blueprints/index.html I have an animation where the character is taking small steps to the side. However, when the animation is done, my character snaps back to his original location. I want him to side step and then resume where he lands and play his idle animation (and of course have camera follow. I have no found any help with this online. One suggestion is root motion, but everything I do is not working. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! .....Some pictures for reference. Not sure how to finish Picture 2.

I figured out how to do it thank fully. Thanks to the animation blueprint tutorial videos in unreal (specifically this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C16vlfe3pXc ) along with this documentation ( https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Animation/RootMotion/index.html ).

Here are some pictures for reference. Hopefully it will help someone else someday. As an extra note, because my animations were full body, I just placed both montages under the same slot node.
