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"

Animate a UMeshComponent

Greetings UEers, I coded up a simple UMeshComponent (similar to the CutomMeshComponent plugin) so that some geometry could be generated on the fly. There's probably some way to get animated geometry (either per frame, per tick,...) but I am not seeing it in the API (also tried looking through the SkeletalMesh code to see where it specifies that the geometry is animated but no luck so far). I can guarantee that the topology remains the same, just wanted to update vertex positions. Is there a flag, or other object that needs to be attached somewhere along UMeshComponent, UPrimitiveComponent, ..., UObject? -thanks -s-
