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"

Import external fbx animation without skeleton

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to import a simple fbx animation from Blender with the meshes into UE 4.5.1. The animation is rotating cogwheels that have constriants to their parent to make a full rotation of all. But everything I find on this issue is that it should have a skeleton. Somewhere I also found that there used to be an "import rigid body" option which could be used to import these kind of animations.

Is there a way to import non-skeletal animations? Or is there another way to make these animations?

Got it working (mostly). I had to uncheck the "all actors" option in the FBX export settings. Now it is recognised as an importable FBX and I have an option to create a new skeleton mesh when importing.
