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"

Why is my custom character model flickering when I rotate the camera?

Hey all!

I just ran into a weird problem that I hope can be fixed with and easy solution. My character was working fine until I made a change to her skeleton. What's happening is when I play what I've created my character that was custom made is flickering uncontrollably. Like, the character will remain sold and then when I go to rotate my camera, the character flickers from being visible to invisible.

Is there a way I can fix this?

Does anyone know why?

Hey Nednarb1986 -

Unfortunately without seeing the asset it is hard to pin down what might be the exact cause. My first thought would be look at your vertex weights as you said it was not until after you adjusted the skeleton that this problem started. If you could upload to youtube a brief shot of the problem or if you are willing to share the asset we could help you farther.

I actually did manage to figure the issue out.

A simple re-import corrected the problem. Thanks for the feedback though :D

I met a similar problem in UDK and I'm wondering if it could be the same problem here : do you have collisions (a physics asset) on your skeletal mesh (I'm assuming it's a skeletal mesh since you are talking about a character) ?

Without these collisions, I guess the engine is unable to determine properly the visibility of the mesh and the occlusion culling is probably conflicting with it. Generate a basic physics asset and link it inside the skeletal mesh settings (inside persona). Maybe it will fix the problem.
