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"

Why is my skeletal mesh faceted?

I finished a model in Maya and imported it to UE4. Everything was fine and the model looks great.

I than rigged it and re imported it as a skeletal mesh and it became faceted and not as smooth as the original static mesh.

Can anyone help me with this?

(See how smooth the wheel is on the right robot compared to the left one. its exactly the same model) - List item alt text

Problem resolved!

Thanks to user HenrikRyosa from the UnrealEngine forum.

The fix was to import with normals and tangents under the "Normal import method" on the "Mesh" section of the import window.

Thank you!

I believe its because of the hard edges. In Maya try Normals->Soften Edge.
