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 can I import a custom weapon?

Just out of interest last time I tried importing weapons to ut/udk I used ActorX to sort out the animation, but there is no actorX now from what I can tell (maybe things had already changed before UE4!) so I can get a weapon and animations into UE4 but atm I don't see a way to 'split' the animation into firing/reloading/idle etc its just one @30frame anim, can that be done in UE or needs to bve done in the modelling package?

What have I done wrong?

Animations are stored in .fbx, per file. If you have more than one animation in one file, during animation import you can specify keyframes to import, make sure to rename .fbx file before importing another animation from the same file. UE will overwrite assets with same names.

Hi thanks for this I've kinda moved on now (I probably should have noted that!) So I have all my seperate animations in now as you described by importing the animations as animations only and specifiying the keyframes. SO i used the fps template and replaced the fps default (arms and gun) with my skel mesh which is just a pistol. I can set a default animation but am not sure how to transition between them so for example if the weapon is lowered in its default state I want RMB to raise play the raise weapon animation but you don't seem to be able to play anims in blueprint only anim montage, so I set one up which had a notif to play a particle effect (shell casing) so the shell casing notif triggers and I can see it but It doesnt show the weapon animation, does anyone know how to rig a custom weapon and play various animations at will. I had a look at the fps shooter but couldn't find anything.

Hey Verbal,

You might have better luck getting some community answers by creating a new topic on AnswerHub. While your new questions may stem from this original post, it sounds like you've moved on to another part of the process and a new question with an appropriate title would get the attention you need.

Best,

Ben Halliday
