[Closed] Skeletal Mesh import issues 4.5
I've been looking for a solution to this problem for 2 days now without results. Here's the issue.I imported an FBX file with animation included. The file imported fine and the animation too. Everything worked fine until I decided to click off the "Import mesh" option. Now when I try to import a skeletal mesh the "Import Mesh" options is gone and there is only "skeletal mesh". I clicked it and when I get to the import animation window the "Import All" is grayed out and I can't import skeletal meshes or animations anymore. I tried to reset the importer to default but I can't find where to do that.
If anyone is having this issue and know how to solve it please post how to solve it. Again the "Import Mesh" options in the FBX import is gone and I can't find it.

This Question is a duplicate of the issue that has been reported fixed for version 4.8 JIRA [UE-4857] https://jira.ol.epicgames.net/browse/UE-4857
I believe I found the solution to the problem. My model was rigged using icons and SDK's to drive the animation and UE4 recognized it as a static mesh instead of a skeletal mesh. I made a simple arm joint system with a cylinder and the "mesh Import" showed back up. The only strange thing is that I was able to import the mesh and animation into UE4 with no issues prior all this with the same FBX file. Hope anyone that had this issue found this helpful.

Just had this happen to me again and decided to dig around a little more. Turns out there are at least three other threads discussing this same problem, and one of them has two workarounds listed that are significantly less work than rebuilding the entire project. The first one listed below worked in my case...

This problem was also mentioned in the following threads:
According to Tim Hobson, this bug has been fixed in 4.8, but for those of us who haven't upgraded yet maybe this will come in handy.
