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 make animations in UE4?

Hi, some time ago I have seen a Development stream on youtube which highlighted a new feature (in 4.17), for making some simple character animations in UE4. Is this feature available in 4.17, or was it postponed to a later version?

Product Version: UE 4.17

It is, you can keyframe bones and their positions in the animation window and use it to create your own animations.

A new video from Epic was streamed about new animation features, you can watch it here:

In this training, I've linked to a point I remember Alex messing around with changing animations by key frames:

Hi, I have played a bid with the tool shown in the video you suggested (second link). It seemed a bid too crude. I have since found the video I was talking about: https://youtu.be/r40PJ6r_P4c?t=4m21s

However, I can't find the tools from the video in the engine.

That looks like the ARTv1 plugin.

It might share some code with the ARTv1 plugin, but it is all in the engine. As far as I know, the ARTv1 plugin is for Maya.
