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"

Create multiple animation clips

How do you go about creating multiple animation clips from a run on animation sequence that you get from animators or mo cap data? Unity has this feature is it in unreal I cant seem to find it any where.

You can create duplicate of the existing animation, and then remove frames you don't need, but it would be nicer to ask you frame range before duplicating one. If you look at the animation editor, and see "Create Asset" tool bar, you'll see create animation from current sequencer. If you'd like to allow add range for that, that would be great. :)

Hi Ray,

You should be able to create animation composites to split up an animation, although the workflow isn't ideal (https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Animation/AnimationComposite/index.html). Create a new one, then add your long sequence into it and set the start point/length accordingly.

Cheers, Michael Noland

Thanks that is a workaround but would be MUCH better to specify frames rather than time. Is there any place where the unreal guys are showing features they are working on? I was thinking if I wanted to implement something like that myself did the work and then the next day they released a patch with that very same feature would be wasted time. Anyways thanks.

We're still figuring out exactly how to present that sort of information, but the plan is to have a public facing roadmap in the future.

Converting that to use frames instead, or in addition to time isn't filed ATM. If you want to have a crack at it, I'd be glad to look at integrating it back.

Cheers, Michael Noland
