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"

How to import a spline from 3ds max as a SplineComponent

How can I import a spline from 3ds max?

I can import an animation but I can't import a spline as a UE4 SplineComponent (the ones you can edit from within the editor itself)

You can't. Simple as that, unfortunately. You can, however, turn that spline into an editable poly > import that mesh into UE4 and use it as a reference to draw the spline with the editor's spline component.

I'm working on a Houdini Engine Digital Asset to export/import splines from your DCC app (Maya/3Ds Max/Cinema) to Unreal Engine 4. the Houdini Digital Asset reads the spline/curve from the DCC app and converts it to a 'copy paste' value Unreal is able to read. Still some small bugs with rotationvalues. It was fun and I've learned a lot about Python. I can put it on Gumroad for free when its done.
