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"

Recording more than one character in sequencer

I'm prototyping a cinematic where three bad guys (same visual, like clones) are chasing a girl. To benefit the fantastic Unreal engine recording playable character feature, I applied to these two different characters the skeleton of the default mannequin. This way, I can simply open the ThirdPersonCharacter blueprint, change the Mesh to the character I want to see in the shot, run and record in play mode. BUT, let's say SHOT #1 is recorded with the girl. If then I change the blueprint to a bad guy for the SHOT #2, obviously, when visualizing the whole sequence, SHOT #1 is now showing the bad guy too (and not the girl anymore)! I guess that I would need to create another playable character, one for each different character I want to see (especially if there are seen at the same time in the same Camera Cut). So my two questions are : #1 - Is there a tip I missed that would allow me to do the job without creating a new playable character? #2 - If not, I found many videos showing how to create a playable character from scratch but I didn't find yet any video or document showing (if this is possible!) how to easily "duplicate" the default ThirdPersonCharacter. Let me know any link that could help. Thnaks a lot!
