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"

GearVR - Skeletal Mesh polycount is 10 times higher!

Hi all,

I'm testing some skeletal meshes inside a scene using UE4.12.5

Using the Stat Engine to keep track of the polycount I notice that the enemy I have in front of me ( which has 6000 triangles ) seen thru the Stat Engine the skel mesh has 53k triangles which is almost 10 times the actual polycount....I know that skinned mesh require more GPU power to compute, but 10 times? really?

Is this the standard workflow for skinned mesh on mobile?

Please tell me I'm doing something wrong

Product Version: UE 4.12

I had a similar issue, the problem is that the skinned mesh has more then 4 bone influence, that's why the polycount is that high.

In Maya ( or whatever software you're using ) there should be an option to reduce the number of affected joints by the skinning.
