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"

Character Rigging in Blender for Unreal

Can anyone help or direct me to definitive tutorials on proper rigging in Blender of imported FBX files, allowing the use of included character animations? Alternately, can an FBX be rigged inside Unreal?

When I set the FBX character import option to "None" for skeleton, the character's limbs are static during game play. When I set the FBX character import option to "UE4_Mannequin_Skeleton" for skeleton, the character and rig 'explode' in unpredictable ways.

The files can be downloaded here...

Thank you in advance for your help! This is a game-stopper (pun intended).
