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"

UStaticMesh has varable called RenderData which is FStaticMeshRenderData

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Engine/FStaticMeshRenderData/index.html

there is LODResources which contains mesh data for each LOD

https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Engine/FStaticMeshLODResources/index.html

In there you can access VertexData and so on and other stuff, dive in to API refrence ;]

No sure if you need to do somethign before accessing this date, maybe you need to call Build() in UStaticMesh. It's some breef info i dig out for you.

Thanks a lot for responding! I really appreciate it!

Unfortunately, I can't find anything in either link that tells me what vertices make up each triangle.

Do you know how to expose the render data to cpu in a packaged build?
