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"

Importing multiple skeletal meshes from one .fbx


I'm importing a .fbx character made of about 10 separate meshes, one for each clothing part. Unreal keeps importing it as a single skeletal mesh.

Is there any way to force UE to import the meshes as separate skeletal mesh assets?

Product Version: UE 4.10

Not that I am aware of. You may need to export the pieces' geometry individually with the skeleton to get the desired results. As an example a glove would be exported with just the glove geometry and the skeleton and a shirt would be exported separately with its geometry and the skeleton like this (using the TPS Mannequin as an example mesh)alt text once in engine to recombined them all in the character you can use the Set Master Pose Component on begin play to set them to move in-sync with the character mesh.

Well, that doesn't solve my problem but thanks for answering.

Seems we'll have to do this the hard way.

How strange. I am having the opposite problem. I want to import the skeletal mesh as a combined mesh, but it keeps importing into UE4 as a separated mesh - all with their own skeleton!
