How do I fix smoothing group error when Importing mesh?
I'm trying to import my Tree-Meshes I did with Blender like in this video
But after import, UE4 tells me this Note " No smoothing group information was found in this FBX scene. Please make sure to enable the "Export Smoothing Groups" option in the FBX Exporter plug-in before exporting the file. "
I cant set up the textures for the Leaves.
Can SM tell me what i did wrong?
Just to clear up any confusion for anyone who happens to stumble across this thread with the same issue, here is the fix for Blender:
When exporting the the model from blender in the FBX format, you can select one of the follow three types of smoothing:
In the past, only Edge and Face worked (didn't bring up the smoothing error in UE4), but it now seems that any of the three work just fine.

You'll need to make sure that you've properly setup smoothing groups for your mesh to avoid this error message.
I don't use Blender personally so I'm not entirely sure how to setup smoothing groups but this tutorial from a Google search should help.
And to set up the texture for the leaves you'll need to make sure that you've imported the texture > Made a new Material with your material > make sure to use the Opacity Mask to only show the leaves portion of the texture.

Working with blender 2.74, it works with Face enabled.
Export .FBX with Blender 2.74 to UE 4.8.2.
And the "No smoothing group information was found in this FBX scene. Please make sure to enable the "Export Smoothing Groups" option in the FBX Exporter plug-in before exporting the file" issue do not mess you up anymore :)
