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"

Skeletal Mesh fingers problem

Unreal Version: 4.15.1-3348071+++UE4+Release-4.15

Blender Version: 2.78c

I am in the process of testing my Blender to Unreal pipeline and have become stuck with a problem of fingers leaving their parents. For testing purposes, I have removed all keyframes from the fingers, so their should not move. Still, when I import, and preview the animation, the last 15 frames, they rotate on their own like this:

(Observe the character's right hand; the hand in the left side of the image).

These are my export settings:

It would appear that adding some rotation keyframes further up the hierarchy solved the problem, or at least mitigated a lot of the problem. Why this is, I don't know. Seems like a bug.
