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"

why are imported animations not playing on skeletal mesh

I import a biped skeletal mesh into 4.15. It imports fine. I am using the same character and skeleton to do animations. I bake down the animation and import it selecting the skeletal mesh I already imported so it understands which skeletal mesh to use. When I go into persona and view the skeletal mesh it is fine standing in a T-pose. However, when I click on one of the animations and show bones in the animation view port of persona the animation is not attached to the T-posed skeletal mesh but shows up on top of the skeletal mesh playing the animation I selected on what looks like a duplicate skeleton. The character is bound and weighted properly.

I believe I have discovered the problem. It comes down to planned obsolescence. I was importing my skeletal mesh as a 2011 fbx file. I imported this file again with a 2014 fbx and the skeletal mesh is behaving as advertised.
