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"

Sequencer Animate Character BP with multip. SK components

Hey guys,

is it possible to animate a Blueprint Character with multiple SK_Mesh components(arms, legs, chest, head) in one sequencer track. Driven by the anim BP? alt text

When we droped the character BP in sequencer the selected animation doesnt play. If we drop all our SK components as separated SK mesh actors everything works.

Many thanks for your help.

Right click select properties then change slot to the slot name of that character. I tried this but another issue is the weight not working.

Hello mrlz,

I tested this. Slot name doesnt seam to affect anything for me. We have multiple slots in one BP Character. Is there no way to apply an animation in Sequencer to all inherit components from a BP?

The details panel for the BP changed the animation mode to custom.. but no animation is played. Any thoughts?

Hi, yes I believe it is possible. I've loaded the "Customisable Medieval Knight" from the asset store which is also of a modular nature, (Several Skeletal mesh parts) and it worked in Sequencer like a charm -requiring only one animation track. Currently testing if I can implement the same logic with the Roman Character. I will post an answer with more details shortly. (Or at the very least, a pic of its blueprint)

Hopefully this will guide you in the right direction. I'm going to try it myself and update the post with the results.

Update: I can confirm the Roman Character works perfectly in Sequencer when using the Set Master Pose component within the Skeletal Mesh BP construction script.

Create a new Skeletal Mesh BP and set up the parts you wish to use. (Don't use the one that came with the package as it will cause errors unless you know how to make the proper adjustments.) Here's the setup that was successful for me:

Key for this specific Roman Char:

Skeletal Mesh = UE4 Mannequin set to invisible

Torso = SK_roman_chest

Helmet = SK_roman_helmet

Head = SK_roman_head
