Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Smoothing groups not working on mac

Hello,

I am using 4.4.3 on a Mac and I'm just trying to import a .FBX from 3dsMax. Everything goes well except the smoothing groups. They don't show up. I tested this on a windows too, and on windows the smoothing groups work ok.

Is there an additional step for the mac version of the editor in order to import the smoothing groups ? How do I get this to work on a mac?

Thank you.

I'm not presently aware of this problem, though someone else might be. Any chance you could provide a demonstration .fbx which shows the issue so we can take a look at it?

I'm so sorry, I just discovered the issue, no need to look into it anymore, sorry for wasting your time. :(

Glad you solved it! For future visitors it might be best to answer your own question & explain what was up.

I'm the guy working with Unreal Engine and my colleague is the one working with 3dsmax. He works on a windows, I work on a mac. I asked him what he did different, why did it not work the first time. He said that the first time, the .fbx contained 5 separate meshes (the car body and 4 wheels) and they all had smoothing groups but the 5 meshes were not grouped. The second time he gave me the .fbx, he placed the 5 meshes in the same group, and that fixed it.
