3ds Max to UE4 - UV Channel 1
I'm having trouble with all my models I've been trying to export into Unreal Engine from 3ds Max Design. They all seem to import with overlapping UVs from the channel 1 (I think anyway), even though I have not set any UV channels on the number 1 in 3ds max or when importing the FBX I have un-ticked textures, materials and tried many different import ticking options with no luck. I set a UV Unwrap in 3ds max and it looks like this in UE4 on channel 0 -
There are many small objects in the model which have been unfolded and have spaces in-between them. This is what it looks like when I select the Channel 1 drop down -
Very messy! I have no idea how that got there or how to remove it? I've collapsed the objects in 3ds max and removed all UVs and started it over from fresh, but still this happens and I guess this is what is causing the error of overlapping UVs popping up when I build the lighting in the engine?
Any help would be appreciated :) Thank you!

I just thought of something... If I create the same unwrap UVW for both Map Channel 1 & 2 in 3DS Max, then will this fix the problem? (I'm not at my UE4 computer currently)
edit: Yes this seems to work, there seemed to be a second channel being created either during the export process or import process. I have created a second lot of UVs on channel 2 in 3DS Max and it has fixed the overlapping problem.
