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"

Edit a Animation Blueprint Variable in Level Blueprint

I'm quite new to the Unreal Engine 4 and I ran into a problem in my VR project. I want to trigger an animation with the trigger button on the right touch controller. I've made a blendspace where the horizontal axis goes from 0 up to 1(float). Since I couldn't get the input event into the event graph of the animation blueprint I've tried to edit this float in the level blueprint but I couln't figure out how to edit this float in the level blueprint. How do I do that?

Product Version: UE 4.21

If you are trying to reach your VR character's anim blueprint you can do it in your VR character BP like so:

If it is another actor in the level select the actor > right click in level BP > Create a Reference to actorname and the get the skeletal mesh from it in order to get it's anim instance:

Are you sure the mesh's Animation Mode is set to Use Animation Blueprint? If not also make sure to set your anim BP ans the Anim Class.
