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"

[Feature Request] Cannot preserve scale for Replace With Composited Blueprint

This is a bug I think, where the scale is not preserved when making a composited blueprint from 1 object.

I have double-checked it. I create a StaticMesh actor, scale it, and rotate it. It fails to preserve the scale on conversion.

This isn't the case however when doing it with a group of objects, from what I've found. So it would be an aspect of root node transformations and how that's handled in the code- probably.

Will check back later and try some more cases; but the code is too much to dive into for me.

It's the same design issue as this:


Workaround: simply add a Target Point or other object onto your scaled/rotated object before you convert. This creates a SceneComponent at the root.

Adding 2 items to the resulting Blueprint gets around this issue of not being able to do anything with the root component of your Blueprint, which is a very silly, arbitrary and annoying restriction that could easily be avoided simply in always using a SceneComponent at root.

Hey Archibold,

In 4.3, when you replace a Mesh with a Composited Blueprint, the Static Mesh component isn't locked as the Root. That should only happen when you use the Create StaticMeshActor Blueprint.

I apologize, I only just realized what you meant. When you convert a Static Mesh, it automatically makes it the Root Component, which removes the transform details. Making it the child of a Scene Component Root by default would make a lot of sense. I'll put in a feature request for that. Thanks!
