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"

Is it possible to get a bone's scale value from a SkinnedMeshComponent in Blueprint?

I want to retrieve the local scale value of a bone of a SkinnedMeshComponent so I can feed it into a dynamic material instance each frame, but looking through the Skinned Mesh documentation I can't find a node that lets me do this.

If I were using a Poseable Mesh it looks like I could retrieve the scale with GetBoneScaleByName, but I need to use animations, which, according to this question, are not supported by Poseable Meshes.

I think It might be possible to compute the scale through some clever use of the Transform from/to Bone Space nodes but I was wondering if there were a more direct method.

I can see the scale values I need in the Details pane of the animation editor when I select the desired bone, so I know the values are there, but unless I'm missing something I can't see a way to retrieve these values in Blueprint.
