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"

Attaching a player to a animated moving object.

Hello, I'm trying to attach my player character (motion controller pawn) to a animated moving plane imported from maya.

I've tried using the following setup with no luck: alt text

Here I am trying to attach the root component of my VR Character to the BP_CharacterPlane(My animated plane), however it won't move with it.

One interesting thing I noticed. When printing the world location of the BP_CharacterPlane it returns a static number, even though the plane is moving location (pictured below). Maybe this is because the animation is imported from maya? How come it doesn't recognize the plane is actually moving?

Thanks. alt text

If the movement of the plane is due to an animation, then I think you need to use Root Motion to update the object's world location based on the animation's root bone position changing. I've never done it but I think that's how it works.
