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"

Maya: Add bones to skeleton without any influences

Hi UE4 Community,

i just have to say that the maya forum is a little bit lame :D

So i try it here.

I think it is an easy question for those who are familiar with Maya and Animations


I have a skeleton. Now i want to add two bones. These bones are just animated joints for holding something like weapons, etc. What do i have to consider to achieve that.

These bones shall be childs of the arm bones.

And is there a cool solution for displaying these new bones like big arrows. I could need that cause to adjust the one bone to focus on the other hand every frame. I need this for an animation where the character is holding a rifle.

Other workflows are also very welcome.

Thanks in advance

UE4 Community is the best, i know it :D

Sincerely Yours
