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"

Animation Sharing Plugin Removes Collision

I set up the new Animation Sharing system and have it working. However, the skeletal meshes that are now using the system now have their collision removed and I'm not sure why. I have dug into the source code and I can't find the reasoning.

For example, I have an enemy. Normally, I can shoot the enemy mesh's limbs. With Animation Sharing enabled, the mesh no longer has collision and can't be shot.

This is stated nowhere in the documentation nor does it quite make sense based on my understanding of how the system works. Is this a bug or intentional?

I have the exact same issue. All collision is disabled on the skeletal mesh when Animation Sharing is applied to it.

Hello, I am glad to find your reply about Animation Sharing Plugin. Now I also get trouble about using this Plugin. I try use documentation, but can't get needed result. Can you give me some help?

I don't know where can i create rules for playing animation (for example, transition between walk and run). It doesn't provide something like animation state machine in traditional Animation Blueprint. In particular,the TransitionAnimBP doesn't have AnimGraph, it only has EventGraph.

Also, I don't know how the stateProcessor work, I can't understand the override way of the function "Process Actor State" in docs.

I have tried to read the C++ source code of the sharing plugin, but i haven't got useful information to make it work fine up to now. I am a C++ programmer in the past and new to UE4 .

We also posted a question here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/901975/view.html

Look forward to your reply, May you have a nice day~
