Blender to UE4 animations

No.536079 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Sup guys, need some help here.

I'm new to making games, and right now I'm trying to create animations in the Blender Action Editor that I can import into Unreal Engine 4.

I've searched around a lot on google, but I can't seem to find a tutorial on how to animate different parts of the body seperately, and then add them together in UE4. For example, a guy can either have his hands by his side, or hold a gun. But you don't want to create a walking animation for both the arms hanging down and holding the gun, you want to create an animations of the legs moving, and then stitch together the animations you need with a blueprint. If anyone could guide me through this I would be grateful.

Also, making each animation a file and exporting it to UE4 also seems to be a bit of a problem, I can't find anything about turning animations into their own files. If anyone know anything about this I would be even more grateful.

Advice, links, anything helps.
