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"

FBX import pipeline - How to import levels from max/maya

Hi , this problem has bother me for a long time and one big reason we have went for Unity - for visualisation projects. Our "level" are always prepared in external packages like max/maya, in other words, not only staic mesh assets, but entire level/scene are assembled outside.

So now the problem we always facing - how do we import the level (which will be imported in parts for workflow reasons ) and put the parts back together exactly as they should, instead of placing them again manually.

I must have missed something here, thanks for the help.

Thanks then how do I make sure all objects are in the exact word space poison as there were in max?

center the pivot, freeze the transformations, delete the history and you would be all right. Make sure that the pivot is at the very base of the assets. are you working all by yourself or do you have a team?

Mostly me - can I ask , what unit dose UE4 use internally? my model( based on meters) comes in really small, looks like they needs to be scaled up 100 times, is there a way to change the default unit?

about 7 gb - plus additional example projects

you need to scale them in max. In max 1 unit = 1 unreal unit = 1 centimetre . it could be any unit in max; could be centimetre or kilometre but it would only be only 1 cm in unreal engine. Can you tell me how big the file size of Unreal 4 is?

it's around 6-7 GB

I am on Mac, files are in different places, it's hard to see how big every together is, plus, the example projects are optional to download which is downloaded later.

all right but can we resume the download?
