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"

These are bones you can use for IK setups. Some nodes inside the animation blueprint only take in IK bones for their settings. This allows you to have setups where the hand will always stick to the gun, or feet to the ground. You can learn more about IK here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Animation/IKSetups

Thank you for your reply. I see an example of the Ik-setups guide document. However, I have confirmed that the ik bone mentioned in the text is not used. In fact, even if I do not have ik bone It is possible to attach a hand to a weapon or to express a footplacement. I can even make weapon swaps naturally when using the ik_hand_gun bone. But I still do not know where to use ik_hand_r or ik_hand_l. T^T

Correct, you do not have to use those bones, you can also create your own virtual bones for these purposes. You can use them however you want, or even not at all.
