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"

Importing downloaded FBX

I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but I can't seem to find anything on here. Anyway, I downloaded this desk.fbx model and I want to import it into UE4. But I completely forgot how. When I try to import the file, it doesn't show up as a file to import. So I'm lost. Any help or explanation will be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!

can't you just go Import, select All Files on the dropdown in the bottom right (assuming you're using Windows) and select your fbx file? What exactly are your steps?

Alright, I actually got it to import.... But it has no materials on it and the scale size is extremely small when I bring it out of the content browser. And I got the error:

"No smoothing group information was found in this FBX scene. Please make sure to enable the "Export Smoothing Groups" option in the FBX Exporter plug-in before exporting the file.Even for tools that do not support smoothing groups, the FBX Exporter will generate appropriate smoothing data at export-time so that correct vertex normals can be inferred while importing."

So I'm not sure how to fix that. The textures are jpegs and I'm not sure how to mess with those. Any ideas?
