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"

How to remove cloak from character?

Heyy,

I'm doing an animatic for a future short film and learning to use Unreal at the same time. In the film, a character has a cloak on for the majority of the time, except for the beginning scene. I was wondering how I would take the cloak off in Unreal? I don't need to see it being taken off or anything, just not have it on the character for that period of time. One of my teachers said I just had to rig it properly in Maya, but I'm still not sure how to get any of that to work. It's currently bound to the characters neck/head.

Thanks!

If it's a closeup, remove the cloak.

Otherwise you will need to learn how to rig. That seems like a skill you want to have anyhow.

Hey, sorry, I made a bad choice of words (I corrected them). I meant that I want to remove the whole cloak, not just the hood. And I know the basics of rigging, I'm just not very experienced.
