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"

Strange bones in Unreal sceleton

Hi! I'm now working with animations, and i'm confused a little with default Unreal skeleton: skeleton, that could be used for root motion animations should have special root bone, but, the "default" Unreal engine skeleton, have a lot of strange, unused bones:alt text

This makes creation of animation very difficult, but looks like i have no choice if i wanna start with existed animations from Mixamo, for example - cause thay all have this bones. For what are these bones?

Those are the Inverse Kinematics or IK Bones that should all start with the prefix IK_ and they are used by the engine for the IK movement for the hands and feet.
