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 two physics bodies not collide with eachother

Hello Everybody,

I have a rather simple question. I have two objects which I want to physically interact with the other objects in the scene, but not with each other.

How would I setup the Collision to allow this?

Thank you for your time,


Product Version: UE 4.8

First you need to create custom object channel in project settings: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Physics/Collision/index.html#customobjectchannelsandtracechannels

Than you need to go to your object details - collision and set object type to your new channel. Set to ignore for every object channel that this object should ignore and go to other object details and make the same.

This blog post should give more details under TRACE CHANNELS AND OBJECT CHANNELS: https://www.unrealengine.com/blog/collision-filtering

Thanks for the answer @Footman. I finally learned how to use custom object channels.
