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"

Changing default/reference pose from another mesh

Hi All, In my project I have retargeted the animations from the 'Animation Starter Pack' so they can be used with the characters from the 'Infiltrator Demo' and I have managed to get there but I feel like I have missed a trick.

I noticed there is a Skeletal Mesh 'SK_Infil1_Proto' that is in the exact pose I need to perform the retargeting. If I use it for retargeting everything is perfect and it needs no tweeking. However the other skeletal meshes that use that skeleton are still a mess.

I found that if I take the mesh that I want to use for the animation and change the reference pose to match the 'SK_Infil1_Proto' pose the animations then work correctly however I cannot seem to find a decent way of doing this.

Copying and pasting bone by bone gets most of the way there but is very laborious and sometimes it doesn't seem to paste and I then have to manually type in the correct values. Also when typing in the correct values they keep changing.

So my questions are

  1. Is there a 'better' way to change the default/reference pose of one skeletal mesh to match another using the same skeleton.

  2. Why when I manually input rotation values does it change both the value I input and also other rotation values to a different, although fairly close, value

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
