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"

Why can't I apply a material correctly on an imported mesh from Blender?

Hello ! I am new to UE4 and I tried to import a static mesh from Blender. It works perfectly, but when I applied it a material with a texture, it display a very big texture (a unique color), as if the material was expand. I tried to apply both custom material and epic's materials. But when I use a default static mesh, it works perfectly fine ! These are few screen of my problem: alt text It is the imported static mesh with a custom material. A unique color instead of many tile.

alt text The same mesh with an epic's material (M_Tech_Hex_Tile_Pulse).

Thank you for helping ! PS: Sorry for my english, I am french ^^

Hi AnonymeR77,

I'm thinking that it could be something with your FBX export settings from Blender. Could you post a screen capture of them along with what your texture should look like on your model?

Thanks, TJ

What I would like to do is to just modeling with Blender and apply texture and make uv mapping and material in UE4. But I think it is not possible ?

Hey Anonyme,

What Fighter suggests is probably your best option. Creating a UV map for your model in UE4 is not going to create an ideal map.

However, if that's what you're looking to do you can do it in the Static Mesh editor. Open up your mesh, and under Window look for Generate Unique UVs. This will open a new panel with which you can create a UV map.

Hope that helps!

Thank you very much ! The problem was that I didn't know that the uv map created in blender was saved in the fbx file and imported in UE4. So I have create my uv map in blender and imported it in UE4 and it works perfectly fine ! Thank you !

Have you made a UV for your mesh? -> go into the edit mode - select everything - press U - unwrap - export and import it

Now it should work.
