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"

Mesh distorted when applying retargeting

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure this out for a while now. My mesh is completely distorted when I apply retargeting. I'm using the UE4 Mannequin Skeleton as the Skeleton for my imported mesh. I constructed the mesh and bones in Maya LT using the same hierarchy and name convention as the Unreal Skeleton, so I thought this should work fine when I brought to Unreal. The mesh is animating, so I guess in a sense the retargeting is working, and - as you can see on the left of the screen - Unreal seems to be recognizing my skeleton, because some of the bones are white and some grey - meaning this model is not using the finger bones and such, I didn't set them up in Maya for prototyping purposes.

I've already messed up with Retargeting Options (AnimScale, Animation etc) with no success. I've also tried to import my mesh using the UE4 Mannequin Skeleton as well as creating a new one. When I import creating a new skeleton and go through the retargeting process, it immediately recognizes the bones automatically, but I cannot share animations for some reason.

Any ideas for a solution? Thanks!
