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"

Making physics based animation work with side stroller template

I’m trying to add physics based animation to a simple project created from the side-scroller template. I was reading the documentation found at https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Animation/PhysicallyDrivenAnimation/index.html and based on it I changed the side scroll-er character blueprint to contain logic for enabling physics:

When I hit play I can see the wires firing off from EventTick and going all the way to setting blend weights on bones, but physics simulations are not blended with animations. Nothing I did so far triggered physics.

Product Version: UE 4.8

Reading the documentation carefully I saw this note:

Skeletal Meshes are used in this example for overall simplicity. The same techniques can be applied to a Character or Pawn, simply by utilizing the Set All Bodies Simulate Physics and Set All Bodies Below Physics Blend Weight nodes within the Animation Blueprint's Event Graph, rather than on a simple Blueprint Actor's Event Graph, as we do in this example.

So I moved logic for enabling physics blending to the animation blueprint, but now I have a few questions see image: alt text

Made a cast from Pawn Owner to SideScrollerCharacter to get the mesh mut still no luck: alt text
