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"

How to align pickable object to any hand in VR layout with blueprints?

Today I have a new issue about main motion controller blueprint... I'm building an aplication where I can pickup some objects of my level. This object has a bluprint based on empty VR proyect layout but I changed it a little bit.

I would like the object can be grab with a "snap effect"... So it is so easy to me. I should only change "LocationRule" and "RotationRule to "snap to target" option in the "AttachToComponent" node. Like this:

BUUUT... when I pickup this object he turn his local rotation -90º. Then I added "AddLocalRotation" to fix this problem.

Well, now the object turn in the direction I want... but now in the left hand the object turn 180º... It is like a mirror behavior. I see that the object rotate in the opposite direction than in the right hand...

I need to align the object with my hand correctly.

I hope you support me. I'm desperate!

Thanks guys!

Why not branch on which motioncontroller/hand it is attaching to and use a different relativerotation depending on the branch?
