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"

Attaching skeletal mesh after adding animation

Hey just notice this weird bug I get when I set animation then add a skeletal mesh and attach it. The skeletal mesh transformation is wrong but by just adding a small delay even a zero seconds delay some how corrects the transformation .

Hey TheH0EY,

Can I ask why you're leaving your Rotation Rule as "Keep World"? Usually when snapping objects into a skeletal mesh hands, you'd orient the socket so that the object snaps in just the right orientation when using "Snap To Target".

It was something to do with the model I was using, whenever I used "snap to target" the bar also rotated it to a funny angle.

Hey TheH0EY,

Were you using sockets or attaching straight to bones? Bones don't always have the orientation you're looking for and you may need to use a socket. Let me know if that helps.

When you use "Keep World", it will spawn in the dumbell in it's default orientation and attach it to the bone at that angle.

I haven't been able to reproduce this issue with and without the delay. My assets are always at strange orientations if I don't use SnapToTarget.
