Weekly Twitch Recap

By Chance Ivey

Stacey Conley hosts while Mike Fricker and Wes Bunn go through a slew of feature updates coming in Unreal Engine 4.5. Wes gives us a deeper look into the new animation retargeting workflow implemented to ease the process of moving skeletal meshes between different skeletons. The team finishes with a healthy dose of Q&A revolved around the upcoming release.

We are as excited about 4.5 as you all are, as it is by far our most robust update since the March 2014 launch at GDC. Watch out for the preview notes, followed by the official release in the coming weeks!
