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 animate a mesh being picked up by an actor during an animation?

For example, we want our player to interact with a crate. He'd then see what happened with that crate in the very same room while is still able to walk around.He would see people taking out guns from the crate. How do I make it that the animated character(That appears after you interact with the crate) actually is able to take out a gun from the crate?(You see him bending forward, reaching for the gun in the crate and as he lifts his hands, he needs to be holding a Tommy-gun with both hands) Do I have to animate the gun with the character? Or can this be done trough socketing/blueprints? In short: How can I animate meshes during an animation?

You can animate it with the animation desk app on your multimedia phone. Just imagine your character with your creative mind & activity and draw it through useful application. It really helps you to get a visualize character you want to see with a gun.
