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 to import huge .FBX in unreal editor?

Hello Friends,

I am fairly new to unreal editor, but have gone through few online tutorials. I am using the Mac Version of the unreal editor (Version: 4.10.0-2758231), my system has 2GB Graphics and 16GB of RAM and 3.4GHz i5 processor.

I am trying to load a model of a hotel in unreal editor, where the fbx loaded in maya shows approximately 7,076,069 trices but when I try to import the same in unreal editor it just freezes for hours, I have tried it more than 5 times now but no luck.

Can anyone, please point out how to approach to load heavy meshes, or the maximum limit in terms of trices or poly-count for a 3D model in single scene in Unreal Editor?

Thanks, Sharat

Product Version: UE 4.10

Well, just split it up? Also, on import, did you try to deactivate the Lightmap UV generation, same goes for the adjacency buffer building and collision stuff. Just deactive close to everything :D and dont combine too, this way you should see the object count that is importing?

Importing such a large mesh is not recommended. LeFxGuy, is correct in that you could break this extremely large FBX into parts. The building being one piece, assets another, and then anything else that is left over.
