Dragging Unreal Asset into viewport make it lose texture and shape.
Hi everyone this is my first time posting and I am very new to unreal engine, so sorry if I am a noob, I downloaded an unreal asset from my friend and i copied the folder over to my contents folder in my project then I went into unreal engine and the folders were there, then I went into the Meshes folder. Here where the grass assets that I needed so all I did was drag them into the view port and suddenly they don't have a material and their just cubes without material, here are images.
After Dragging into View Port :
I hope you are able to help me, its really getting annoying because this is not the first asset this has happened with. Thank you very much.

It looks like you don't have a material applied, apply the material of the mesh and tell me what happens.

Don't worry! I have found the most amazing solution its not migrating or copying to the Contents folder. All you have to do is navigate to your Vault Cache located on your PC and paste the folder with the assets there, then restart the Epic launcher then go to Library you will see your assets there and just click add to project! I found this all by my self, never seen this on the internet please spread this with everyone!
