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"

[Optimizing] Make Animation Blueprints on characters stop playing at distance.

Hello UE4 community,

I'm trying to increase performance with my characters in the levels.

They're low poly, utilising an Animation Blueprint. I have been able to render 240 of them before significant frame drops from physics interactions. (I'm trying to implement the "rigid body node" to make cheaper ragdolls). - If anyone has any tips with this I'd appreciate it.

However, I'm trying to stop animations playing at a distance or at least cull the mesh / replace with very low LOD when I'm far away. Even at far distances, the Animation blueprints still are playing and my gut instinct is that it's using up significant resources to do so.

Any advice with this? Thanks.

Extra info, The NPCs are passive wandering AI, so detail at a distance should be minimal.

Product Version: UE 4.17
