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"

Strange SetRelativRotation behavior

Video: YouTube Link

I'm setting the relative rotation to 0,0,0 and then I attach it to a socket. But sometimes the rotation is different and I'm not sure why this is happening. Do anyone have a solution for this?

Hey Doktor.

Relative rotation means you set the rotation relative to the parent, so what you see is the rotation relative to the socket is 0 but the socket is rotated! So your final rotation is the World rotation of your socket.
Try setting the World rotation to 0 after you attached it to your socket :)

Hope this helps :)

Sorry I think I didn't explained my problem enough. The rotation is correct sometimes, in the video u can see that the mannequins orientations is sometimes forwards and sometimes to the right, but only forwards is the correct orientation based on the socket.

Could you paste a screenshot of your BP's?

Hi Doktor,

If you could, please post what steps you are taking to reproduce this on your end and/or screenshots of your blueprint event graph where you are setting the rotation. This should help clarify what is occurring.
