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 create VR gun grab/interaction like in Pavlov VR?

Hi Guys,

I am currently creating an application to help avoid negligent discharges, as well as showing how to disassemble and reassemble the SA 80 rifle for my university project. I have currently finished the SA 80 model (Shown below) but, I am confused about where to go from here.

I've looked into methods of making a skeletal mesh with the model I have (Which is also built as multiple pieces too) and using sockets but, I have no idea how to create a skeletal mesh and how to use sockets to get an effect like the gun handling in Pavlov VR ( Like this ---> https://youtu.be/IRsG39Vl1uU?t=320 ) and Zero Caliber for example?

Would anyone be able to suggest a method on how to get the same effect as Pavlov's weapon grip/handling system? Or be able to explain to me how to use the method I have mentioned above?

Also, if anyone else would be able to assist; I would also like to know how to go about making the cocking handle work to eject the rounds etc. ( Like this ---> https://youtu.be/IRsG39Vl1uU?t=336 )

Just to add I am using 3dsmax for this model.

Can you please point me to a tutorial and program to do what you did with the separate parts correctly? I think, I think I understand the timeline part.

You may want to have a look at my tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxKYgJmc5a8 It will get you started with the weapon grabbing and handling.

Regarding the animation of the gun, you don't necessarily need to use a rigged skeletal mesh. You can animate the single parts with timelines. Have a look here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Blueprints/UserGuide/Timelines

@vr_marco, Ahh that looks exactly like what I need for the grabbing! I will give it a shot with my model, though would it still work if the model is in pieces? Or would you recommend that I parent the model pieces together or anything like that?

Also, I will look into the timeline stuff, thank you for that suggestion! :)
