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"

not really my area of expertise but it could be a difference in bone orientation between the modeling software and UE4. some programs use different coordinate systems for armatures, for example if you try to import the mannequin into blender the bones will often be at 90 degrees from where they should be.

what modeling software are you using?

i'm using Blender to unreal with the fbx format. sorry I should have included more details but I was half awake and frusterated lol. how would I fix bone orientation?

Ok so now that I'm awake and refreshed I was able to do some fiddeling around and testing and figured out that it wasn't the characters model that was exploding, but the bones from the skeleton that it was parented to the Skeleton I made that was the issue. so now I think the issue that I need to solve is properly attaching the meshes to the bones of the skeleton. now that I know the issue this should be resolved pretty quick. do I have to mark this post as resolved somehow if I do manage to fix it?
