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"

Convert skeletal mesh to static mesh

I have a lot of skeletal meshes of people in my scene but they never move. Having all these skeletal meshes drags down the performance quite a lot while having static meshes would be much better. Is there a way to convert a skeletal mesh in a pose to be a static mesh?

Thanks!

Tested on UE 4.14. Open the skeletal mesh assets or animation asset in the Asset Editor (double-click the asset) and click "Make Static Mesh".

If it's an animation asset, you can choose the frame you want to convert.

There is no way to do that in UE4. You'll have to pass them through your modeling program and then export/reimport. you can reimport the existing skeletal mesh fbx files as static meshes but they'll be imported in T pose or whatever their default pose is so that wouldnt be much use.
