I’m a little confused about root motion. I’m trying to create a slide action for my character - I have a slide animation where the character moves in the animation. It’s from Mixamo so I take this to understand that this animation features root motion, which means it cannot be blended with any other animations, it can only be played or used in a montage.
Is that a problem in this scenario? Do I need a slide animation which doesn’t include root motion? I’ve successfully imported the animation using the UE4 skeleton and I can get the animation to play using root motion, but it doesn’t look correct at all. I’m guessing I would need to manually adjust the animation and remove the root motion if I did indeed need to blend it. I’m just not sure if I do.
Could I get away with just playing the animation when the player presses a button? I’m quite unfamiliar with how all of this works.
