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"

Skeletal mesh import issue

Hi guys,

I'm trying to import a weapon as a skeletal mesh. Included in the file is also an animation.

Only half the model is imported and I cannot figure out what is going on. Model imports correctly as a static mesh.

Model in Max:

After import as skeletal mesh:

The imported part is the part that's animated.

Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening?

Do you have your other part bound (skinned) to some joint? If not then the exporter will just treat it as a separate object and won't export.

Nope.. It was not.. Modeling guy is working on it now..

Thank you very much IanBreeg..

I'll mark this post as resolved when the new model is tested and it (hopefully) works.

Thank you again.

My guy says he thinks the model is rigged properly and is kinda stuck. If I send you the model. Would you be willing to look at it?

If you already got the help you need then this can be considered reference for anyone else with the same issue.

This looks like an error with the mesh being in multiple pieces with only one being skinned to a bone system.

It's fine to have the mesh in multiple pieces however all pieces need to be skinned to the same bone system.

Go back over the Skin options for each mesh and ensure that all pieces are skinned to some capacity on the bone.
