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"

Rotation Matrix in Blueprints

I understand that there is C++ methods to do this in code, but I have a blueprint based project and need to create a rotation matrix from 3 rotation angles then to multiply a unit vector by this matrix.

Is there any support for rotation matrices in blueprint or should I look for another way to solve my problem? I need a unit vector rotated to point up the forearm of an avatar from a gimbal centre (gimbal centre has already been defined). I get I could use the "Get up" BP function and break the rotation of the gimbal down?

Many thanks,
