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"

How do I import 3ds max files into UE4?

This is basically the entire question. I really don't know how and can't find the answer online. Please help, thanks!

Also, I really don't know how to import any models at all, but 3ds max is the type I'm trying to import now.

Product Version: UE 4.7

UE4 works mostly with FBX files. Just export your models from Max as FBX.

I can't find a way to convert the file. Also, I just discovered that I have a .max, not .3ds. Now what?

You don't convert the file, you open it in Max and export it.

Sorry to not know anything, but this is a test model I downloaded: how to I open it in Max?

A ".max" file is a project file, simply open it in 3ds Max (File > Open). You can then select the model and export it as FBX (File > Export > Export Selected).
