                I'd like to ask, how intensive would using morph targets be compared to animated bones. For example a common question people run into often is whether to use bones or morph targets for facial animation, I'd like to know which would be the best method performance-wise in UE4.

                  When my pawn blueprint has a particle emitter attached to it, and the pawn has physics enabled, the emitter always lags behind the pawn by a distance determined by framerate. Why does this happen and how to fix it?

                  Thanks

                        Can we get the recording of this stream up soon? Pretty please? It seems the Twitch page has stopped auto-archiving recordings.

                          @SiggiG - Going up now! I've been out of town for the last few days. There *should* be a way yo view it on the twitch channel itself, however, at twitch.tv/unrealengine

                            Cheers! Yeah there used to be an option there, a tab where the chat is, but it disappeared a few weeks ago?
