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"

Help deleting a extra Root Bone

Hello, I need help deleting a dumy bone in Maya. What I'm trying to achieve is what this guy does in Max : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE0g_djR12s , from minute 1:30, after he imports the mesh , to 2:40. In short, when you export a game character from UE4, it creates a parent bone for the original Root bone, so when you try to reimport it back to UE you get a error. Now, I have been able to recreate it in Max, trial version, but in Maya Lt Trial, I can't, if I select that Bone, it just selects the whole skeleton and the mesh. I can't upload the project files as it's a Daz3d model and that would infringe on the copyright thingy.

 Any ideeas, please?  


 Thanks, Alex.
