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"

How do I reimport new animations

I have a skeletal mesh with animations that I have imported into UE4 but I have created a few more animations in the FBX file and wish to import them as well. Selecting reimport does not give me these new animations and selecting import gives me an additional copy of each existing animation, the mesh, and the skeleton. How can I get just the new animations?

Product Version: UE 4.12

If you open an animation connected to your skeleton, on the top menu there is two buttons "Import" and "Reimport", the "Import" button should allow you to import new animations for the same skeleton, although it will prompt you to replace the existing assests previously imported (mesh etc.) which I find inconvenient.

What I do instead is I go in my import folder (make sure the skeleton and other assets related to the anim you want to import are not in this folder) and click "Import" in the content browser. Then I select the appropriate .FBX file and untick "import mesh", set the skeleton you need, set the animation range you want then hit import, you will be given an animation file. Move this file to the Animations folder in your content browser then go back to the import folder and repeat these steps for all the animations you need.
