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"

What is the unit of Angular Velocity?

Self-explanatory title, I'm trying to figure out what AV is measured in, is it Degress-Per-Second or Radians-Per-Second?

The reason I ask is because the numbers in my case are really high... like in the 6-digit area which seems pretty insane!

The unit of angular speed is not rad/s! Looking at the UE4 source code, it is indeed Degrees per second

Are we talking about units in Unreal Engine? Everything I've seen in Unreal Engine is in degrees. Could you point to some documentation that says that unreal uses rad/s?
