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"

when adding assets from the UE4 Store to the project, why is it also adding extra mannequin and animations to the project?

Hello Everyone,

I am still new to UE4. I purchased a few assets from the store such as some bushes and trees, swords and other cool stuff. When I add the assets I got form the store to my project, it also adds more mannequins and more animations to the project. This is causing an error with the animations for my character as I believe the engine gets confused on which mannequin and animations to use because all the new assets I added, also included such things, with the same name.

I am using one of the content examples the engine comes with (3rd person template) , but all the extra folders from the assets I added also includes the same mannequin and animations in its folders.. Now my character moves around on a T-Pose.

When I got to the characters blue print and try to change the base animation, I got 5 animations with the same name, just different source. The extra animations and mannequins come from the folders where each of the new assets I purchased are located.

What am I doing wrong??? or how can I import the assets I purchased but with out the extra mannequins and animations?

Please help

Product Version: UE 4.15

Ok I think I found a solution to my problem.

I deleted the demo levels that showcasing all the assets that i got from the store. Then I deleted the extra charter assets that came with the things I purchased from the store. I know I could of kept those extra mannequins and stuff but I had already introduced those to the project by using the -> Add New -> Add Features or Content Pack to the Project. Then for the animations I used an option called Retarget animation assets for each of the animation I purchased so that I would point those animations to the character mesh I want to use.

Problem solved.
