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 there any way to edit bone translation in an animation within Persona?

I've found that I can successfully edit and key bone rotation within Persona and then export the animation with the additive layers sort of baked in (I'm not an animator so I apologize if any terminology is wrong). However, when I edit and key translation, these changes do not get saved in the exported animation. Is there another method within Persona/UE4 in general to edit bone translation in animations and then save those changes to a new animation?

Product Version: UE 4.18

I'm not an expert on this stuff either, and I haven't played with this a lot, but what I've found is that if you go over to the 'Skeleton Tree > Options > Show Retargeting Options' and change the bone in question's Translation Retargeting method to Animation instead of Skeleton, it will accept translation data. Unfortunately, I can't help with the theory aspect of why that is, or whether messing with your skeleton's retargeting method will come back and bite you later. But it does at least work!
