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"

Porting Skeletal Rig for Unreal Engine

I have made my own custom model for a game. However, the skeleton that I used for animation is not compatible with UE4's 2Bone IK and other bone control features (because the skeletal rig is setup for animation not for realtime manipulation). How can I go about porting my skeleton along with all the animations that I've already made? Would I have to repaint weights? Re-animate? I'm using blender but if I accept Maya answers I'll look into similar solutions thanks.

Specifically, my leg bone hierarchy is screwed up and is parented in the wrong way that does not allow the foot to work with a 2 bone IK function.

Just dont export control bones to UE4. Export only those which deform the mesh. All their attributes get baked to .fbx
