Pivot Tool is a pivot editor for Unreal Engine. 

With Pivot Tool you can easily modify actors pivot either manually or automatically by applying one of 27 pivot presets. You can bake the pivot changes into static mesh right inside Unreal Editor, there is no need to open 3D modeling software for pivot position tweaking.

I need to set pivot over 16k actors. While when I select all the actors in the level editor and set the pivot to the center, i found all the actors' center are set to the same location, Could you provide instructions on how to batch set the actors' pivots with this tool. Thanks.

And It seems that in some cases, the pivots of actors can be set individually while in some cases the pivots of actors are set in a random group(the same pivot). Could you help to figure out the issue?

Hi husha1993,

When "Group Mode" is off, all actors' pivot will be set individually.

When "Group Mode" is on, then all actors' pivot will be set as a whole group.

Here's a short video to showcase the differences.

I see. Thank you!
