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"

FBX did not support MAYA Smooth Mesh Preview (key "3") for skin. You need smooth normals or convert Smooth Mesh Preview to Polygons before skinning.

In this screenshot your model without Smooth Mesh Preview

In this screenshot your model after Smooth normals

Thanks a lot!

Does that mean I need smoothing meshs before skinning....right?

I thought skeletal mesh is displayed on the screen as the same as static mesh.

I was wonder some days in this thing, but now resolved finally. Thank you!
