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"

can you use 3d animations on a 2d sidescroll character?

if i have a 2d character blueprint but want to use the animations that are included in the free paragon characters, is this possible? this would be to replace the flipbooks that the 2d character uses

Product Version: UE 4.20

Do you mean that you want to add the 3D animations to a 2D character that you've drawn? If so, sadly no.

But if you want to use a 3D character in a sidescroller, it is indeed possible. You can have a look at the sidescroller template.

Can you try making a blueprint character type in your 2D sidescroller template? Then in the mesh you can set it to your paragon asset.

so i tried this for a while, changing anything i could and the paragon shows up but he cant move. i even changed him in the game settings to be the player character and he is still not moving and there is no collision either. i most likely did it wrong so any more help would be greatly appreciated!
