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"

Convert 4x3 rotation matrix to Euler or Quaternion

I've used Forest Pack in 3ds Max to create a forest area, I've then exported all that data as an XML file to recreate the same area in UE's Foliage system. But the rotation is exported as a 4x3 matrix, like this:

 rotation="[-0.639031,0.768364,-0.0354409] [-0.768831,-0.63667,0.0595894] [0.0232222,0.0653275,0.997594] [0,0,0] "

How does one convert such a matrix to Euler Angles (FRotator) or Quaternions in C++?

Unfortunately my math skills in this area is rather limited (close to none) so I would really appreciate as detailed information as possible.

Product Version: UE 4.13
