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"

skeletal mesh feet sinks into floor

I have a skeletal mesh with per poly collision enabled. The capsule component has collision enalbed and also is simulating physics. Ther animation associated is a running animation. The problem I'm facing is that the capsule component seems to stay above the floor while the feet of the skeletal mesh sinks a bit inside the floor. I've tried enabling collision, simluate physics etc. but nothing seems to work. Doesn't the per poly collision proive an inch perfect custom collision on the skeletal mesh.

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hello there. What you are looking for is an IK foot solution. Irregardles of what collision type you enable on your character the feet will sink a bit on the floor since the collision used to calculate the position of the character is the one of the capsule component.

Take a look at this documentation: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Animation/IKSetups

Its not begginer thing to set up, but if you have experience you might give it a go. If its to much of a hussle there are several IK solutions available on the Marketplace.

There is even a free one in the forums! https://forums.unrealengine.com/development-discussion/animation/117158-free-ik-foot-placement-system

Hope it helps. Have a nice day!
