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 get velocity from an animation for ragdoll?

Hello everyone,

I have a skeletal mesh and a death animation. When the pawn is death, the death animation is played; but in the middle of the animation, I activate ragdoll. The problem is when I activate the ragdoll, the ragdoll stops and starts free falling. I want the ragdoll to continue on its movement depending on the animation. Is there a way to get velocity from an animation?

You can try getting a velocity of a single bone, if there is such an option. Alternativety, you can get a bone world location twice on one tick and the next one, and calclate the velocity based on that. And then set the respective velocity for the ragdoll.

Thank you for your answer. I couldn't find any method to get a velocity of a single bone; however I've found the solution. Before I go to ragdoll mode, I save the physics linear and angular velocity of the skeletal mesh; and then when I activate the ragdoll, I apply all those values on the skeletal mesh again.

To make this question solved, I'm posting the solution again here.
