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"

FaceFX Blendshapes

So I'm trying to use FaceFX in UE4 with models I made in Fuse and downloaded through Mixamo. Mixamo's character's are generated with facial blendshapes and I thought that that could work with UE4, but after following the tutorial's steps exactly, the audio would play, but the face wouldn't animate. The model animated perfectly in FaceFX, but after importing it to Unreal, it wouldn't work. The slade example worked fine, however. Is this because Slade has a facial skeleton? Can I animate in UE4 with blendshapes?

I made all of the poses for the batch export out of Maya and I quadruple checked the animation blueprint and blueprint class in Unreal. Everything worked until I tried playing the animation in Unreal, so my best guess is that blend shapes don't work with the FaceFX to Unreal plugins. Is this the case? Is there a way around this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
