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"

Root motion doesnt work properly ):

Hello guys, I have the Dynamic Sword Animset from the marketplace and im trying to get a root motion atack while pressing spacebar but it doesnt work. The root bone is correct, the enable root motion in the animation is enabled and i have verified that it works with the options of the animation viewport. So i create an anim montage of that animation in the slot that i have defined in the anim bp, then I have just configured that when space bar is pressed then play the anim montage but it doesnt move the player, it works like an in place animation. And if i configure the animation in the state machine it moves the player but when finished it returns him to the initial location...

The funniest thing is that i have tried in the third person template and there it works perfectly... So what another part do i have to modify?

What I have found out in that specific Marketplace asset, is the root motion bone does not retarget correctly. I had to make the animations custom for a character in 3rd party software anyway. But, a work around you may try is to get the "Forward Vector" in blueprint and "Launch Character" by a small amount to give the illusion of root motion. I've had success with it.
