Can "Blender 3D" work with Unreal Engine?
Hello, Epic Games! I have a question. A day ago I downloaded and installed Blender 3D. I want to create a character for my game. Can I do it with Blender, or there is a special tool for creating character in the engine? I NEED TO KNOW!

Yes you can use blender to make characters for UE4 but when it comes to rigging and animations using the UE4 skeleton just forget about using that as there is a lot of problems with UE4 and blender using UE4 skeleton but if you are going to make your own yeah it should work. Make human is a good tool to get a base mesh for a character

One of the best tool for character creation is the Daz 3D Studio Pro - http://www.daz3d.com/ .
It's free and user-friendly and have version for Mac.

The answer is yes. You can absolutely use Blender to make characters (and more) for Unreal Engine.
It seems the questioner will try something else, but I think it's important for future users who will see this question that they know Blender is a good (and free) tool to use with UE. Sure, there will be quirks, but that's not unlike any other application. Fact is that many use Blender in conjunction with UE.
There are multiple guides and tutorials around (google) that gives you the specifics you need to do the export and import properly. If you had a specific question or issue, I would answer it here, but your question is general in nature.

Its really hit and miss with ue4 and blender, sometimes it will work, and sometimes it will have a completely new and weird glitch. I found that most of the time it works, but ue4 is meant to use 3DS Max and Maya, so your best bet is to get a free trial of that or something, or you can power through the glitches, but they are annyoing. And no, there is no in-engine character creator.
