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"

4.5 Where is 'Import Rigid Mesh'

Hey all,

Once again the question kinda says it all. I'm trying to import a mesh with some animation on it and I can not find the 'Import Rigid Mesh' option anywhere in the new exporter.

Can anyone please tell me where it is hiding?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Enable Import as Skeletal in the dialog box and make sure import mesh is enabled. That should be enough.

Hm, If it's not skinned it greys out the import buttons. So far I've tried it the old way, with the animation on the object; I tried making joints myself and parenting the pieces to them; I tried exporting the joints separately so that I can parent the meshes to them later.

Nothing worked :(

Weird. Today i imported a door with it's case; door Linked to the case in 3ds Max, nothing skinned...and it imported just fine. Have you played with export settings? Maybe there is something you are missing.

:( Yeah I tried everything I can think of. The only difference I see here is you're using Max and I Maya.
