First let's check a couple of things.

Did you put the GA_Animation folder in "UDK/version you're usiung/development/src"   ?

also did you add

+editpackages=GA_Animation

to the appropriate line in the defaultEngine.ini found in config folder?

Put everything where it needs to be and open your level-->go to World Properties->Game Type->PIE and change it to your game.  So if you're using the tutorial files it's AgentGame.    I don't have UDK in front of me so jump into the World Properties in the main menu and look for PIE (Play in Editor)

Matt, everything worked but for one item, the character in my scene is floating above the floor. I remember in the earlier videos you mentioned translating him down the up axis, and I followed your cues, but it still ends up floating. Any ideas?

Can you take a screen shot of  your character package, animtree and animset?   I would like to cross check the names.

Do you have a solution to this issue? I double checked all of my steps and i'm wondering if it is due to the fact that I have a newer version of UDK?

It worked the second time I tried it, but I'm still wondering what may have caused the original issue.

Thank you for this tutorial series. 

This has helped me and lots of others to take our first steps in UDK. 

 

Kind regards

Hey Jimmin79,

I'm glad you figured it out or at least it started working for you.  I have no idea why that happened.

@Mtardiff

Well I haven't had an issue since, and as far as I know, a restart on UDK and Frontend should do the trick for anyone having that issue. Thanks again for the tutorial!

@Mtardiff

I also wanted to ask you if you have any experience using a different type of rig hierarchy? I have done a few different types of rigs and one of them isn't working properly for bake and export. It's a rig in which the controllers are in the same hierarchy as the joints, and I'm wondering if there's a checkbox I may be missing, or if that is just simply a UDK no no. Can you help?
