Motorica Studio v0.3.0🔗︎

Released on 2024-Jun-13

Improvement🔗︎

  • Updated various UI icons.

Bug & Crash Fix🔗︎

  • Fixed crash when interacting with 3 or more styles in the Style Mixer.
  • Fixed crash when trying to connect to API location that is unavailable or that was incorrectly entered in the plugin settings.
  • Fixed crash after certain API calls to the Motorica servers fail.
  • Fixed the Level Editor viewport toolbar becoming hidden when the Motorica Studio Editor Timeline is playing.

  • Fixed crash when "Save Animation" is pressed but no animation has been generated.

Notes🔗︎

  • We are officially dropping support for UE 5.0 and 5.1. These versions are old, buggy, rarely used, and take up development resources. We will no longer maintain the plugin for these versions and we always recommend you use the latest UE version supported by Motorica Studio.
  • Plugin settings are currently separated into multiple entries in Edit > Project Settings > Plugins due to codebase organization and limitations of Unreal Engine.
