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"

In the animation blueprint, use "Transform(Modify) Bone" node in the Anim Graph. Specify the bone you need to rotate in it. Input the rotation values of your camera(which you can easily get from your character) in the node. alt text alt text

Ok this method worked almost perfectly, i had some idea on how to do this and in the end i got it to work by setting rotation space to "world space",

Only 2 problems:

When i move my camera up it kind of lags behind although it does go up as well, is there a way to like force it to come with me and not lag behind?

If i look all the way until my camera isnt able to move anymore (which is good) and then i try to move some more the bone (spine along with its children) will keep moving even though my camera stops, how do i set it so it doesnt go past a certain point?

I cant thank you enough you've gotten me far!!
