    This product contains an assortment of Unreal Engine assets which can be imported into a pre-existing project of your choice.




In this animation pack, we imagined what kind of animations we would find for the different characters of an old fashioned 3D beat em up, that is to say the retranscription of the 2D Beat em up directly in 3D, very present in the arcades of the late 90's and early 2000's. All the animations have been motion captured by three different performers in order to have a certain diversity in the gestures and the moves. Each character will have his own speciality of fight and moves. The first character is based on brute force and punches, he is performed by Guillaume Fenot, a real martial artist. The second character is based on fast jabbing and holds, he is performed by Lotfi Daba, a long time sportsman. The third character is based on kicks and is performed by Marine Dolle, a student in stunt school. This pack contains 177 unique animations. All the animations are captured in motion capture at 30 FPS and retouched manually.

I should point out that only the animations are sold. In the pack, you will not find any scenery. Currently, all our animations use the standard Unreal Engine nomenclature, with the Unreal Engine 4 skeleton, ensuring ease of use. However, when importing, you will not have the object directly in the character's hand, it will be up to you to add the object to your character's hand manually. In the documentation will show you how to make the animations still (no root mode). All animations are sequence type only. With some exceptions, the fingers of the hand will not be animated. Finally, some small adjustments may be necessary to make the animation fit your custom character perfectly.
