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"

Unable to import correctly anymore?

Hi all,

I've been trying to import an .fbx actor with morphtargets I've made in blender, but it hasn't been working.

Usually to import something with morphtargets you select importas as skeletal mesh, and then you will have a checkmark box to import morphtargets. This isn't showing for me.

I then tried reimporting something with morphtargets I've already imported before (successfully, perhaps in a different version of UE4) and I've had the same problem.

Has importing to UE4 changed recently?

Hi ShrewGlue,

Which version of the engine are you currently using?

I'm able to import just fine with with 4.6 and 4.7 P6. Make sure that you are setting the option for Morph Targets and Animations to import. I do believe 4.5 was bugged and didn't have the option when the new import window was created. This was fixed with 4.6 though.

Actually this was a bug that was reported with 4.6 where you could get locked into this issue where you cannot get the correct import options. JIRA UE-4857. Currently this is slated to be fixed in 4.8.

As a workaround you can fix it by doing the following:

By going into the project folder > Saved > Config > Windows > EditorUserSettings.ini

locate line bImportMesh=False and change this to bImportMesh=True to get get the option back.

In my case it works with the 4.6

  1. click on import

  2. in the import window you have to enable "import as skeletal"

  3. now you should see the "import morph target" box :)

If you look at my comment on the answer above you'll see it's not there :(

Are you able to import this fbx file with morphtargets? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxtLreFIVnSWWDhzSFNoSmdjX2M/view
