Reimporting FBX very slow
Hey there, I'm currently re-importing an FBX scene with 126 objects in it, 3 hours later it still hasn't finished.
I can see that it is re-importing them, as the progress bar pops up every now and again for each static mesh, the file is locally stored on an SSD, so file access times should be next to nothing.
I've exported my FBX from 3dsMax 2016 with the following settings enabled:
If you need the fbx scene, feel free to ask.
The FBX import process can take a while depending on a number of factors.
To test this, disable Combine Meshes on the import options window and import. You should see that it imports the mesh more quickly since it doesn't have to combine and resave the uasset every time it adds another piece.
As an alternative you can use the Full Scene Importer (new to 4.12) to import larger scenes that brings the meshes in as separate actors and can combine them into a single Blueprint actor or place it in the scene. You can do this by going to File > Import into Scene to see how it works.
I hope this helps.
