Video Tutorial




Swift Look At is a customized Animation Node for the Unreal Engine’s Animation Graph System. We can imagine it as a virtual fixture that clamps the target bone that we want to control. Then through calculation, we rotate the virtual fixture and in turn, the bone’s orientation is adjusted. 

Technical Details


  •  Keep the control target from rolling while rotating it to face the target, so it can behave more naturally.
  •  Contrary to the built-in equivalent, Swift Look At applying alpha first, then clamp the rotation, which ensures it is more accurate.
  •  Visual debugging information is very rich and intuitive, which is convenient for users to locate problems.
