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"

How to take a multi-object character from cinema 4d import it and animate it.

I am very new to game making. My friend is the coder and I make the models and basically put it all together. I mostly use c4d for modeling as our "game" is low poly and I know c4d very well. (learning 3ds and other) I have searched and searched but I can't find what I think should be simple. Maybe I'm missing something. I have a character: http://prntscr.com/41bch5 and he is made of 6 objects. The head, body, 2 arms, and 2 legs. They also have there own bones as you can see. I have animated a walk cycle and when I export it as an .fbx it says its working but when I import that .fbx it comes up as multiple objects and I have no idea what to do with it after that. Thanks for your help -Sky

Are the assets that get imported static meshes? I am thinking maybe you have just parented the objects to the joints and not done a proper bind. If that is the case then you need to actually bind the parts to the skeleton and reexport.

Well if your asking if the bones are binded properly then they are because I can animate it in c4d but my problem is that he is made of 6 different shapes and 6 different bones for example the right arm bone is binded only to that part of the character otherwise I get a strange unwanted morphing :( maybe you could help me out through skype or something? thanks for the answer tho.

What type of objects are actually being imported into UE4? Are they listed as Static meshes or Skeletal meshes?
