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 import model from Cinema 4D in pieces?

I want to import model from Cinema 4D, which contains a lot of parts and materials for each one. How can I import a final model to UE4 and apply necessary materials to necessary parts? Or I should import each part of my model and solve them in blueprint?

Product Version: UE 4.9

hi avegames. well, game engines like UE don't work the same way, if you have 1 object made of plenty of parts, you'd better merge them, as 1 object will make 1 draw call, having plenty of sub objects can result in big performance lost. you should take a look at the scifi hallway exemple map on the market, lots of mat informations on how complex meshes and materials are managed in UE4 .

If I want to make a character with shining eyes, I should use 2 materials (one with enabled emissve color), What should I do in this case?

you can achieve this with only 1 mat. just using rgb mask and maybe 2 uv channels. in the sci fi hallway exemple you have a good exemple to achieve that (the wall with emissive)
