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"

Using Gifs for sprites

I want to try to make a topdown 2D spritebased 8BIT game, but I used .gif files for the characters. Is there a way to make them be moving at some times and stationary others, and how would I use their animations in a game?

Product Version: UE 4.10

UE4 don't support engine support gifs and it's animations in that matter, you need to make a texture which has all frames in grid and then use material to animate it by manipulating UV map (sampling specific part of the grid in specific time), or use Paper2D flipbook (it seems you need to make frames in to seperate textures in this case):

Thank you! I will mark as resolved as soon as possible, when my iPad stops glitching.
