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"

Getting Assertion failed: Other.BulkData after trying to call SkeletalMesh->GetSourceModel(); in a C++ BlueprintFunctionLibrary Node. Only works if the blueprint is placed in a level and saved before.

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to get a FStaticLODModel off of a SkeletalMesh to expose some infos via a blueprint node.

If I start a fresh editor and just drag the blueprint into the viewport, the editor will crash every time. However if I put it in and save the Level afterwards, it works perfectly, even if create a new Level put it in without saving it afterwards.

Which leads me to believe that something is happening when the level is saved that is needed for this to work.

I also tried getting to the info via loading the LODModel directly from the FSkeletalMeshResource but it results in the same error when trying to access the array. LODModels.Num() returns 1.

The full error message is: Assertion failed: Other.BulkData [File:D:\Build\++UE4+Release-4.12+Compile\Sync\Engine\Source\Runtime\CoreUObject\Private\Serialization\BulkData.cpp] [Line: 1086]

 void UMyBlueprintFunctionLibrary::GetSourceModelTest(USkeletalMeshComponent* SkeletalMeshCompIn, int& LodNum)
     FSkeletalMeshResource* MeshRes;
     MeshRes = SkeletalMeshCompIn->SkeletalMesh->GetImportedResource();
     LodNum = MeshRes->LODModels.Num();
     FStaticLODModel SourceModel = SkeletalMeshCompIn->SkeletalMesh->GetSourceModel();

         static void GetSourceModelTest(USkeletalMeshComponent* SkeletalMeshCompIn, int& LodNum);

Would be awesome if someone has some additional insight on this.

Thanks in advance!
