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"

Static Mesh material elements don't export

When i export a mesh with 12 material elements and open up the exported mesh in a 3D Application or Import it back in UE4, there's only like 1 or 2 material elements. I Don't know what to do about this. Any help would be appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Besides that not being optimal at all. (id highly recommend against so many material elements since that would mean that mesh will be drawn 12 times.. thats 12 drawcalls!)

You will need to apply a multisub (at least thats what its called in 3dsmax) to it, with the proper amount of sub-channels. Then it should import properly.

But again, id highly suggest to find more optimal ways.

Yeah i already seen that. it just tells me to select the faces and apply a new material wich seems unecessary because i already had different materials on the mesh. What i wanna know is why does it delete all of the material elements whenever i export a mesh
