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"

*BUG* GetSkelMeshComponent() crashing the game.


For my plugin, I have inherited from UAnimInstance in order to constraints bones and morph target programmatically. Unfortunately, calling GetSkelMeshComponent() method is crashing my editor:

  "Cast of Package /Script/MyPluginModule to SkeletalMeshComponent failed"

This is how I call the function:

 USkeletalMeshComponent* skel = this->GetSkelMeshComponent();

Prior to that I would like to retrieve the list of blendshape and bones used with the rig associated with my AnimationInstance. The documentation of GetSkelMEshComponent is not existing.

Thank you for your assistance.

Product Version: UE 4.11
