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 do I retarget successfully default UE4 skeleton to a custom one?

Hello guys,

We are in desperate mode. We are trying to retarget UE4 default skeleton so we can use the "sword and shield" animations on our custom character. The problem is that when we assign the animations the custom character gets all messed up. The bones may not have the same names but they are in the same place. Head, Neck, Clavicle, Upper Left arm and et cetera. It should work. We tried matching the A pose the default character is when retargeting but still nothing. What are we doing wrong?

Thank you in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.8

I have achieved this by going into the retarget manager of the ue4-manequin and selecting the humanoid rig.

then i setup all the bones of my own character made in Adobe Fuse CC in the retarget manager, (did the bones in the "Show Advanced" tab aswell)

Worked like a charm for me. you may want to lookup UE4 Bone-Scaling, without screenshots it's really hard to tell what your problem really is.
