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"

Character "Sinks" When Transitioning Between Anim States


I'm currently setting up the various anim states in my locomotion state machine and when testing I've noticed a strange hopping, or "sinking", effect that happens when transitioning between some of them. See here:https://youtu.be/Gfvh27jGnDI

Anyone know what could be causing this?

Also somewhat related, does anyone know of any good animations in the marketplace for 'jumping while holding a rifle at waist level'? There is one in the anim starter pack, but it looks more like jumping over a hurdle rather than a normal jump.

Here is a link to someone else having the exact issue, but a resolution wasn't provided. It seems to only be happening when transitioning from the default third person anims to the animation starter pack anims. For example, when going from idle/walk/run (no weapon) to jump it transitions fine..but when going from 'jog_holding_ar' to jump, the character sinks into the ground for a second. The amount of sinking that occurs makes the character sink to just above the ankle.

I looked at the bone hierarchy of my Jog_Holding_AR blend space as well as my Idle_Walk_Run blend space and the 3 jump animations (start, loop, end). The Idle_Walk_Run and jump animations have some bones laying on the floor while the Jog_Holding_AR doesn't, I've attached some images to compare. Could this be the issue and if so how do I fix?

If you notice, even though they are visually in different locations, but the coordinates are the same. alt text

Bumping this.

Hope that's okay.
