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"

Multiple animations for one Character

How can I play multiple animations for my characters or NPCs simultaneously? For example, the player runs and fires a rifle. How can I play run animation and aim animation at the same time?

I believe you're looking for blending animations. This is quite basic and common topic - you cant find it in documentation and via simple searching.

For example: UE4 official tutorials

Maybe he have two different models/mesh and then put it inside the character blueprint class and then play two animation at the same time.

Actually, i'm questioning if that's possible, pls answer, thx

it is theoretically possible but each would need to be a skeletal mesh and would need to be running their own anim bp. its possible but not really the best solution in most cases. for a basic character that you want to be doing two animations at once there are better ways to do it like blending.
