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"

Skeletal Mesh has no smoothing groups [4.11 prev. 4]

Hey there,

Unreal Engine 4.11 imports any skeletal mesh all smoothed, like if there are no smoothing groups specified. The same meshes work great if they are imported like static ones.

This issue doesn't happen on 4.9, and we've tested different meshes from blender and autodesk, so we suppose it is a bug in Unreal Engine's FBX import module.

My local machine is Windows 8.1 Same issue on forum with a screenshot https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?94321-Unreal-Engine-4-11-Preview&p=450348&viewfull=1#post450348

Hello -

We are currently tracking this known issue as UE-25264. I have added your additional information to the report and will keep you informed as we continue to investigate a solution.

In the meantime, if you select Built-in instead of Mikk TSpace in Normal Generation Method, the mesh should import with correct normals.

Thank You -

Eric Ketchum
