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"

UE4 doesn't import FBX from 3ds properly???

Hi, I'm working on a house and I'm trying to import it so I can see if it looks good in the engine, not just in 3DSmax.

It goes from looking like this in max:

to this in the editor:

I'm not too sure what's happening and I've done some looking around, can anybody help?

First Reset Xform for all of the meshes. Then convert all of the meshes into Editable Poly. And then select the faces of each mesh and Flip the faces. Finally export them again and they should look as expected now.

Please check the following page: FBX Static Mesh Pipeline

There is a clear note that states:

The UE4 FBX import pipeline uses FBX 2014. Using a different version during export may result in incompatibilities.

Please check on that page under Overview section.

I believe you must export objects separately.. the same thing happened to me when i export many objects at the same time. or attach the geometry in 3dsMax then export
