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"

Flip Mesh/Rotate Actor, Facing any Axis?

Hello, so I have animations for a character that are facing forward and instead of going through the tedious task of rotating hundreds of animations I'd like to be able to rotate the actor/mesh 180 degree's so that its facing the opposite direction.

I'm doing a simple rotation of the mesh on a flip flop on the Z axis to turn it around 180 and back, but I need it to be able to flip 180 regardless of the direction the character is pointing at

the problem here is that when I rotate the mesh it works fine facing the Y axis but when its facing the X it rotates to the right for example

also the problem of rotating the actor is that I also need to have orient rotation to movement on.

any help would be appreciated thank you!

Try using Mesh->GetForwardVector, multiply the vector by -1, and send it into mesh rotation, it should autocast from vector into rotator
