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"

Constraint linear offset

I have a constraint with limited linear motion. I need to find out how far the constrained object has traveled away from it's target position. I know how to get the angular offsets('Get Current Twist', 'Get Current Swing1'...), but I don't know how to do it for linear offset. Is it possible to do it in UE4?

Product Version: UE 4.12

Physics Constraint API sucks, but you can do it your way: measure the distance vector between the 2 constrained objects at the beginning of time, and then compare it to the distance at the moment u care about. delta of these two vectors is pretty much the linear offset
