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"

Four Armed Model in Third Person Example Map

I have a third person example map, and I would like to know if it is possible to retarget the Third Person Animation Blueprint to a 4-armed character, and if so, how.

I am not sure what you mean by retarget, but I will assume you mean re-purpose here:

If so, no you can not simply use the animation as it must have the bones for which the animation was made. You have to make a new skeleton and then animate the new character. You CAN make two arms static and then simply move the other two arms, but I dont think that is what you want it to do.

What I mean by "retarget" is retargeting the animation mesh. When I have a different skeleton, I use a feature called "retarget manager" to set up the skeleton with the humanoid rig, and then retarget the original animations. With two extra arms, I was wondering how I could add a new bones that bridge between the two arms, and making those the "arm". That is the only solution I thought of, but if there is an easier way, I'd like to see it.
