After I saw last twitch stream I decide to learn a little bit more about animation system in UE4 and here is my feedback:
- Amount of features is just incredible - like really AMAZING
- It’s fun and interesting to use
- Quality of UI is inversely proportional to above mentioned stuff. Seems like someone tried to refactor old UI, but then abandoned this project in the middle of “battle”
Problems I encountered:
- Impossible to rename Groups.
- Impossible to remove/delete Group
- Impossible to rename Slot
- Branching point concept and track is removed completely, now it is type of Notify. No mentions at all about this change and it’s extremely not user friendly - I found this only thanks to user from answer hub who checked old source code =/
- Useless Anim Slot Manager menu which, by logic, should allow to manage Slots and Groups, but in fact it has less functions than Montage screen with slot in groups and offers exactly ZERO new actions.
Before updates in November you could rename slots, remove groups and etc - now all this functional is gone :c
