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 it possible to mix facial animation (morph target) with separate body animation (bone based) inside UE4 at runtime?

I have separate FBX assets. One with morph targets and another with skeletal animation. They both successfully linked to the one Skeletal Mesh. Morph target animation is responsible for a specific "voice" phrases. And I want to run such prerecorded facial expressions in specific moments of time. I’m just not sure that this can be mixed up without hours of C++ coding or diving in the Engine source.

I searched through documentation for an animation blending and compositing. But for now I didn't found anything about Morph Curves mixing, especially at runtime.

Is there a realized workflow for that task inside the UE4 Editor? It is possible to play a specific "voice" phrase on the face of my character when it runs in a normal gameplay, not a static prerecorded cutscene?

I'm absolutely not asking for a complete tutorial. I'm ready to write my own Animation Blueprint of any complexity. But if someone points me to the specific function or give any short advice about where I can start to look at, it will be very useful for me.

Thank you.
