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"

APEX Cloth Self-Collision doesn't work

I can't get self-collision of cloths to work in Unreal. I got a character which has a cape and a skirt (Pretty much like Darth Vader) and if the two cloths are a single object then I can make them collide with each other in Maya with APEX but after I export it to Unreal, Unreal totally ignores the self-collisions and the cape is going through the skirt and vice-versa. I also tried making the cape and skirt as separate objects and having two separate cloths but then even in Maya I can't get them to collide with one another. Is there a way two make it work or does Unreal have some sort of limitation?

Did you try to crank up self collision radius in clothing properties in UE4 skeletal mesh to some insane amounts to check if the feature working at all? Sometimes even when it's on it fails to not self penetrate and require some play with parameters. (try to set Self Collision Radius higher, Self Collision Cull Scale lower)
