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"

Why is there a black square with my flipbook?

Game - 2D platformer First time using UE4

So I have been tasked to create a basic platformer game as a project for my university work. When I created my animations using the photoshop and after effects, I noticed that I had a black square that was in the background of my frames, so when I created the flipbook and added the animation to the game there was a black square that surrounded the animation.


What I did

1) imported the .tga files into UE4

2) Then I applied the paper 2d texture settings and created a sprite of each frame.

3) Then I took the sprites and then created a flipbook with them.

4) I then applied the new flipbook for my main character.

This is how it looks within after effects

1 answer: sort voted first

I managed to fix this by exporting the sort animation as a PNG Sequence on After Effects.
