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"

Skeleton mesh disappears when importing in unreal

I am using mixamo characters for my game. The fbx file from mixamo works fine in unreal if I don't modify it, but I needed to split the head mesh from the body so I used maya. The problem is, when I import the fbx from the head or the body, all the clothing is there, but the body parts are missing. For example, if I import the head, all I see is the hair and the glasses, and if I import the body, I can't see the hands. It must be related to my fbx export from maya but I can't figure it out.! Any help would be appreciated!

In Maya, can you select the mesh and post a screenshot of the Channel Box? It sounds like it might not be connected to a skinCluster, but more info would help.
