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"

[Blender] Model WITH Animations breaks and gives Errors

Hey,

i worked the whole day on getting a good workflow on Blender and it's animation thing.

So i have the Couch Knight Character rigged. Exporting the Mesh without the amature and animation works fine:

asd

This version has the pose from the IDLE Animation (because i didn't change it to "Rest Position" for this test).

asfa

Here in the Rest Position. So, if i now export/import it with the animations, it breaks. Here are my settings and my errors. Maybe i'm just missing something that was already stated at the HUB, but i cant seem to find a solution for me:

asd

Scale 100 seems to be necessary. Mesh and Amature are selected.

asdada

Pressing "Import All" resulst in:

Inside Blender its working fine and the animation play in UE4 too, but the model gets scaled down to a tiny mesh :X. Did i screw up something inside Blender and with the model?

Sorry for the long post xD

PS: Here is a picture of inside Blender before i press "Export->FBX":

Make sure to go to blender and do Object-Apply-Scale/Location/Rotation (beside the modes). Could you probably also post a picture of your rigg in the UE4? I think you are using the 2.7 version? (when no, try it with that one) :)

Uh uh, an answer! :D

I'm using 2.71 of Blender. Here is the picture of the rig in UE4:

What the...? :X

OH, i know what is going wrong. I export the additional bones of the rigify controls too. Wait a sec, i will try exporting only the right bones >.<

EDIT: The question is, how do i do this. The Bones that where used for the skinning are on a seperated layer.

Ok, either he is wrongly weighted (dont think that that's the case ^^) or the character is just smaller than the rigg -> try the upper solution + check if it gets better when you just scale the mesh in blender + also try blender 2.7

Edit: Just use the "export selected" in the export settings + currently downloadin the sample to check if I can get it working ^^

I rigged it myself using Blenders Rigify. I just tried to export it in "Rest" position. Now i get this result:

asda

But now my animations are missing. Can i export them seperated?

I will upload you the fbx blender file of the Character, for the case you want to check exporting and importing it yourself. Maybe i'm just too dumb.

Ok, i managed get my comment to moderation :X

So again: Importing the Animation breaks the model again. So i guess my animations are broken. Why are they working in Blender but not in UE4?

It's a bit annoying that this issue costs me hours..

EDIT: Downloading 2.70 Blender. Maybe this fixes the problem? :X

WHAT A JOKE. Exporting it with 2.70 works fine. I would have never found this problem without you. Oh my god... nearly 6-8 hours searching this error and it's related to the Blender version...

EDIT:

So beautiful!

asda

I will accept your answer :D
