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"

Why isn't my Blender model smooth when I import it?

So I have a model that used to be smooth in Blender but then one day when I started up Blender it wasn't smooth. I unchecked (auto smooth) and then it was smooth again. So I imported it to Unreal and then the model wasn't smooth. Here's the comparison:

Recompute Normals and Recompute Tangents are enabled so why is it not smooth? Also whenever I import it is says it has no smoothing groups.

when you export from blender you must change smoothing group from normals to faces. On the newest version of blender, 2.77 it is listed under geometry tab and in older versions just scroll down until you see it.
