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"

Root motion does not apply on Z - even with movement mode set to 'Flying'

I have animations for when the character grabs the ledge of a wall and hangs onto it, the animations have both root motion that's horizontal and vertical, the horizontal is applied but the vertical is not.

Before anything triggers the ledge grab the movement mode is set to 'flying' which google says is how you fix this.

It does not fix this, the root motion is not applied while in 'flying' mode. Not sure what other information to give, seems like it was broken in this version or something (4.10).

Product Version: UE 4.10

Issue was gone the next day, still don't know why. Nothing changed since I posted this just before sleeping.

If by chance the animation comes from Mixamo, then they dont have Z-axis root motion. Not sure thats the case though.

All my own work from the model to the rig to the animation. The z motion displays in the editor but when it's meant to be applied in game it loses z motion but any horizontal is intact. Google tells me the solution is changing move mode to flying and I did that with no luck.

Hmm.. And you play the animation using a montage?
