Setting Up Character Movement

A How To Guide for Setting Up a Character with Character Movement in Unreal Engine 4.

On this page

To create Character Movement, several parts are needed, each working together to produce the end result of a character moving around in your game. You will need a character, inputs for that character, how the character responds to inputs from a player, animations for the character moving, transitions to and from animations, and the logic behind the transitioning between animations.

In this "How To" series, we intend to show you how you can set all this up from scratch in Blueprints where at the end of the series, you will have a playable character that exhibits different forms of Character Movement.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
