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"

What can be done to optimize Skeletal Meshes?

I want to have a large quantity of identical Skeletal Meshes visible in my scene at a time. While with Static Meshes one can instance those to reduce draws greatly. But it seems like with Skeletal Meshes this isn't really an option in Unreal. Now the question is what can be done from a rendering perspective to increase performance with Skeletal Meshes?

Mesh LODs, Skeletal LODs and best one is the MasterPoseComponent, but it has some handicap.
