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"

animations dipping into ground when blending between default 3rd person and my custom ones from ART tool

Howdy! I'm currently working on the Nov game jam and I've hit a snag.

I've noticed that the default root axis orientation on the 3rd person anims is facing down the wrong axis. When blending between those anims and my own created with the ART tool, the root rotates causing the pelvis to try and compensate for the rotation which makes it dip the characters feet into the ground. I took a video explaining my problem fully. I know that if I make my own idle/walk/run anims i'll be able to avoid the problem.

It just seems weird that the default anims root axis is aligned different than the ART tools default root axis. I suppose that's just one of the caveats of a large group of people working on something.

Here is my video: https://youtu.be/SR_G-4ialB8

Im interested in this too... I have the same problem just with playing a standard montage over the standard starter animation pack with a blend per bone with spine_01 set... still no luck. Let me know if u find a solution (or someone else knows)

Same problem here

Oh I forgot I asked this. Anyhow it's because of the root bone rotation on the default animations being rotated 90 degrees. The lerp between the 90 degrees and the ART tools 0 degree root rotation causes the dip as compensation. The only way I figured to get rid of the dip was to remake the default anims through the ART tool so they have the correct root bone rotation. I'll dig through my files tonight and release them if I still have them. :)
