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"

Make a new animation for left to right instead of foward animation

My character when moving left and right, does the running forward animation, as seen in the video: https://youtu.be/UHKb73Ccysc

How can I make it where it will execute a animation when moving left or right? Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.20

I think there is something called anim tree for that.

This is handled with things called Animation Editors and Animation Blueprints. These allow you to use things like Blendspaces, State Machines, Animgraphs, Montages, and all kinds of other stuff that involve animation and the logic tied to those animations. This is among the densest, most complex topics in UE4 in my opinion, but once you wrap your head around the basics you can achieve what you're trying to do without too much trouble.
