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"

Access specific vertex in skeletal mesh. Strange indexing?

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to find the position of a specific vertex in a USkeletalMeshComponent, but the indexing appears to be different from the model in Maya (or an obj of the model for that matter)... Which basically breaks the ID reference I obtained from Maya... Do you guys know how to do this?

I'm accessing the vertices positions using Rama's code:

     FTransform ToWorld = bodyModel->GetComponentTransform();
     FVector WorldLocation = ToWorld.GetLocation();
     for (int idx = 0; idx < Locations.Num(); idx++) {
         Locations[idx] = WorldLocation + ToWorld.TransformVector(Locations[idx]);
         if (idx == 4763)
                 FColor(0, 0, 255),
                 FColor(255, 0, 0),

4763 is just a random vertex in Maya. DrawDebugPoint was my way of being sure that the positions of the vertices are correct, and they are... I've spent more than a few hours looking into this.. and still no idea... Dx

Any help on how to do this or how the vertices are indexed would be brilliant!

Thanks! :)
