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"

Code to put in actor class to rotate a certain bone

I am trying to write code that will rotate certain bones of a vertical robot arm around either the y or z axis. This code will create variables that will be added to an animation blueprint. The only problem is, I'm not knowledgeable enough in Unreal and even C++ to know how to write the code that will have that functionality. Does anyone have any sample code to put in the actor class about how I could rotate certain bones like that?

Product Version: UE 4.19

with USkeletalMeshComponent, you can use Transform(Modify) Bone in blueprint.

with UPoseableMeshComponent, you can use GetBoneNames()and SetBoneRotationByName() in C++.
