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"

I guess that depends on what you're trying to accomplish by combining the animations together.

I want mannequin to have a grab animation

Do you mean you want them to play at the same time?

Yes I do.

Do you know about animation blueprints, blendspaces, and things like that? Maybe there is a way to play two different animations on the same skeleton but at different bone hierarchy like you are saying, using that. If not then I unfortunately have no experience with skeletal animations in unreal so I hope someone else can help! And hopefully you dont have to make the hand a seoarate component. I think you shouldnt have to but it is an option.
