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"

Skeleton Creation Tutorial

Hey,

To start off I need to let everyone know, I know absolutely NOTHING when it comes to animation, rigging and modeling, but I need to create a skeleton for a pistol I downloaded off of the internet. I searched online and I couldn't find any tutorials for creating a skeleton in Unreal Engine, or a free tool, because I do not have money to spend on tools. So if anyone could give me a place to start, that would be absolutely wonderful.

Thanks already, Codekrafter

Thanks for the resource, but I loaded it up, added a few bones to the model, imported it to ue4, and there was only the original single bone
