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"

Changing .FBX version in Maya for UE4

From my understanding UE4 only supports .FBX file formats with Maya 2013. I'm currently using Maya 2015, and would like to know if it's possible to change which version my selection is exported as an .FBX file (It looks like I need this to export as version 7.3?) - Or will I need to install Maya 2013?

Additionally, is there a timeline on when .FBX exports with Maya 2014 and 2015 will be supported?

I know with 3Ds Max, when you are exporting your mesh, a whole bunch of options appear on how you want to export the mesh, including the version. So just look through all of the options when exporting it, and switch the version to the one you want.

Also, here is a link that might help if you cannot find it: http://download.autodesk.com/global/docs/maya2014/en_us/index.html?url=files/GUID-4C3B7C8E-DC42-437E-B9F5-A68C330A93E9.htm,topicNumber=d30e141347 The information you want is at the bottom.

Thanks, it took some digging but I found where this option is now.

for maya

you could choose FBX version while exporting from FBX file format TAB

it's very simple to change it to 2013

I'm using maya 2014 and always export FBX Version 2013
