Hey @Nate -

Got a bit of a request here.

Would it be possible to make is so that we can add our own user defined pivots to our meshes in this tool?

@HeadClot, you can use “Alt + Middle mouse drag” to move pivot then press “Set” key to save the temporary pivot.

Or do you mean a way to input pivot offset (x, y, z) base on existing pivot preset? e.g. you can input (0, 0, 0.5), then press “Center” pivot preset, will set pivot to -0.5 z unit down from mesh center.

Pivot Tool 1.0.8 update with 4.19 support is now live on both itch.io and Unreal Marketplace.

I need to set pivot over 16k actors. While when I select all the actors in the level editor and set the pivot to the center, i found all the actors’ center are set to the same location, Could you provide instructions on how to batch set the actors’ pivots with this tool. Thanks.

Pivot Tool 1.0.9 update with 4.20 support is now live on both itch.io and Unreal Marketplace.

I posted the reply on itch.io. As it might also helps anyone has same question, I quote the answer below:

When “Group Mode” is off, all actors’ pivot will be set individually.

When “Group Mode” is on, then all actors’ pivot will be set as a whole group.

Here’s a short video to showcase the differences.
