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"

I know this is late but it may help others having the same issues. There is a problem with the base TPS template animations and character, the TPS Template animations are setup with the root bone rotated incorrectly. The skeleton has the root bone rotated Z up/Y forward and the anims have it Z forward/Y down. If you enable "show bones" you will see the incorrect rotations, to get a good visual of it make a quick 1D blendspace and do a blend between a TPS template anim and one from the anim starter pack and you should see the weird rotation occur when you slide through the blend space...any of the idles should work for the visual or the run from TPS and the sprint from anim starter pack are good visuals too I hope this helps. Try the anims here and let me know if they work better for you: TPS Corrected Anims

Life saver! But there is no corrected walk animation. Is there anywhere we could get that?

Sorry about that, the one provided by epic is missing a frame once we exported it so we had to make a new one real quick both are now in the file if you use the ThirdPersonWalk anim you will notice the slight glitch at the end due to the missing frame from exporting it. The animWalk is the one to use that we recreated as closely as we could to the original. Hope this helps.

If you look at root rotation it probably will be wrong

Just to help others people:

Go to your skeleton -> Retarget Manager -> Modify Pose -> Reset.
