Having your character lean when running and turning?

I’m trying to get a high level understanding as to the best way to have my character lean into a turn. Right now he runs, and when you move the game-pad/arrow keys he stands straight and moves in that new direction. I would like a more natural feel by allowing for a lean in the direction you’re controlling him. Would the best solution be to use a Blend Space with custom running animation that has a lean, or is there another way to do it?


You could do it the way you’ve described or you could try this new feature available in the 4.7 preview as showcased in the following Twitch stream: http://www.twitch.tv/unrealengine/b/611452679

Funny… thats exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

So going through the link gives me a 404… where can I find an archive?
