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"

Animation Retargeting Source and Target Meshes empty

Using 4.20 I'm trying to retarget the animations from one mesh onto another. The two meshes are in the same base pose (A-Pose) and they both have their preview mesh set, but when I try to retarget, neither of the meshes show up in the retargetting window and I can't re-target the animations.

If I just ignore the fact that neither of the meshes is displaying, I get the error: "...need to have preview mesh setup to convert animation" but the preview mesh is set and applied. I don't know what I'm missing.

Okay, so apparently when you choose the preview mesh, hitting the apply button once doesn't work. You literally have to keep hitting it at random intervals until you see the asterix * appear in the mesh. Then it will actually apply the stupid preview mesh. Why this isn't automatic is beyond me. Stupid UE4!
