Weapon Cover

Hi it’s still me, Fiorenzone. Today I made my first weapon and everything is ok but then I noticed that the model of the weapon clipped through everything: walls,floor,ceiling,even npc. So I made an animation where the player pull up the weapon (like this http://www.gamepur.com/files/imagepicker/6/far_cry_3_screenshot.jpg) when he’s near a wall but there’s a big problem scilicet when I go near a wall the player pulls up his weapon but when I walk away from the wall he continues to play that animation. How I can fix this?

All you have to do is to reverse the animation. Just give the animation a negative play rate on end overlap.

Do you mean in animation blueprint? Or in my player blueprint? Here’s my player blueprint anyway

Dont use a line trace for this. Use a collision sphere or box. Parent the character to the sphere and then use the overlap events.

ok I figured it out but I have a last question: how I should make the animation where the weapon is pulled up? Because If i copy the idle animation, make a montage with the copied animation and modify the pose (pulling up the arms and the weapon) all the animations change

I copy the animation and I change the pose ONLY on the copied file

This is what happen to all my animation

Probably this is a stupid problem for you but I don’t know how to edit only the animation pose I want without changing all poses and searching didn’t help me.

You have to play your animation backwards to get back to your default state.
