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 Can I get UE4 Arms Skeletal Mesh w/ Animations & Keyframes into Blender?

I'm trying to implement new animations for the skeletal mesh arms of the first person UE4. However when I bring the skeletal mesh into Blender, the keyframes for the animations do not show up. Any reason why I cannot preview the skeletal mesh in the pose that the animations hold for it that can be seen inside UE4?

Product Version: UE 4.10

You need to go into unreal persona of the arms. Then select what animation you want and at the top you will see export. The fbx file it generates will work in blender Also note that you will not have access to the keyframe info. The unreal models were made in Maya I believe which animates differently. You will see on the timeline where things were keyframe. To make changes you will need to go to each point on the timeline and press I to keyframe the bone positions.
