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"

Get bone location at cached pose?

While working with an IK setup i have an animation of a character climbing. I need to make sure feet dont stick through the wall during the animation, and since i use both rootmotion and rotation of the capsule to align character to wall, i end up sometimes with the feet in wall.

Ideally i want to solve this by using the original animation without any IK changes as the starting point for tracing to figure out if the foot is i side the wall, and then making a second trace abit further out to find the wall, and the use the FABRIK/two bone ik node to put the foot on the wall. However since the location of the foot then changes for each frame, the foot wiill start to drift along the wall.

So i am looking for a way to get a bone position at a unmodified/fk animation so i can consistenly use that as my tracing point.

Now i guess i could alter the animations to make fk_foot bones follow the animation of the feet to use those instead, but feel its a shitty workaround. Any ideas?

You can't get bone locations, but you can make a socket on the skeleton asset for the bone you want the location for, and get socket location and go from there. If you add a socket to the bone you want the location of with no offsets, it should give you the same info.

Hope this helps!
