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"

Updating hand animation on VR Template

I'm trying to replace the hand mesh from the VR template,![alt text][1] but when connecting the grip state variable, it auto-changed into "Byte to Enum GripEnum." There's something I'm supposed to connect after this to enable the grip state, but I'm at a dead end for now. Anyone have any ideas?

I figured it out. I recreated the animation blueprint based on the right hand skeleton, copy and pasted the logic from the right hand mannequin animation blueprint, recreated the nodes, and everything hooked up like a charm with no problems.

Hi Pharmadude , Old post but I'm looking for the same result, replacing the basic VR hand mesh by a hand mesh I modeled. I can model hands, and have some knowledge about blueprints too, but I don't know too much about rigging and animation. I just wanted to ask if you managed to do what you wanted ? If so, did it work to just replace by the new hand, recreate the nodes, and just hook them etc or did you do some rigging and animation ? Thanks !

Hi jaydehei. I didn't have to do any rigging or animation. The hand meshes were bought from the Unreal Marketplace and came with a hand-open and hand-closed pose. It's been a long time, but I vaguely remember doing these two steps to get things working correctly: Step 1: Create a fresh VR Project using the VR Template and add/import your meshes. Next, follow this tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQZygcnUz3A) with particular attention to the part where he creates the animation blueprint. Step 2: extra logic will likely need to be added to the BP_Motioncontroller. Go to this link (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4msLpftPL4yM21RX1VTa0xpWFE/view) and jump to page 2 for the logic that needs to be added. Hopefully this helps =D
