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"

Is Local Rotation Broken?

As the title says. I just can't get local rotation to work at all not matter how many ways I approach it. Whether I'm combining rotators, using relative transforms, "AddActorLocalRotation". None of it seems to behave as expected.

I have 3 sliders which go from -180 to +180 for each axis. And for the life of me I can not set the local rotation of the object because as soon as it has been rotated even a little. The axis are all messed up and it's not local at all.

Please help, I'm losing my mind.

Hi DannRees,

What you are seeing is called Gimbal Lock and it's just how the engine handles rotation. Here is some info that can help you overcome the issue and get the rotations you are looking for.

How can I avoid Gimbal Lock with Rotations?
