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"

Basic Animation Play and Stop

Hi All,

I have a scene in 3Ds max that has very basic keyframed animations in it. Its things like, doors opening and closing, draws opening etc etc. I can export these objects as FBX and import them into UE4 with no problems, but then i get two different imports.

One is the static mesh and the other is the baked animation playing on a loop. Firstly, i dont know which one im supposed to use in my scene, put simply I just want import it in, and have a level blueprint mapped to a key which will enable the animation, then stop the animation and reverse it.

Apologies for knowing ABSOLUETLY nothing about the animaion process for UE4, I'm much more of a rendering CGI kinda guy. So any info on the skeletons that import and anything else would be greatly appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.18
