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"

import model to unreal

when i try to import some model like fbx file to unreal engine

i download free model and import it , but all i got is a white model

there is no texture , material in it , is this normal ? (not even in download file )

p.s i have no experience in 3d model software such 3ds or maya

but i see a lot of people can simply drag the model and it's just fine

and also a lot of model size is way too big or too small

can i just resize it by tool in unreal engine ? thanks you

Product Version: UE 4.12

When importing the fbx model be sure that import materials is checked. If the model was exported from a 3d software with materials applied then it will come through. If the model is simply white and not the default world grid material which is the grey checker pattern then that is the texture, or at least what the artist who made it applied to the model. You can also set the scale at import in the options if you wish or use the scale tool.

No Problem Dear, Import Textures Separately Just Keep in Mind that Objects Having Different Texture-Material are Different For Animated Character Make Single Texture File Make Material_inst Apply it.

This is not Major issue If it Comes with Simple White Or greyish Colour That Means It comes with Single Default Material Like Lambart1 In maya.
