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 does my skin look stretched when I import an FBX from Mixamo?

At first I was getting "missing bones" until I checked "useRefPoseA" when importing. I briefly remember someone else mentioning this problem - does anyone have an insight on how to fix this?

Much love

-Alex

  • I should note that this was a character that I originally created in Fuse

could you attach an image of the original character(from fuse editor) so I can see differences better :)

as an experience fuse characters will look better if you first import them to a modeling program(maya. 3dmax, blender) and then export and import to UE4.

^^ So you could tell by the Bum arm - something went wrong - so I went to cross check it with a previous character I knew that worked - and I tried with the default "T-Pose"

^^ when I go to check out what the skeletal mesh yields - not the right skin color - I remember somehow somewhere fixed this I am just blanking on it - any help would be much much appreciated! Kind of short on time - which is why I chose Mixamo - and just hopes this works!

Update!

Okay - so this is not the full answer - but I have found something that I works

It seems to be stemming from eye lash texture problems.

Well the solution?

On the Bodymat :

1) Switch the "Blend Mode" to "Masked" instead of "transluenct"

2) Take the Texture Sample with the Body Mat - And plug the Alpha Channel into the Opacity Mask

alt text

3) I took the texture sample that looked most metal - and threw it onto the "Metallic" node

And this is my end result: (Still no eyelashes - but better than before)

To give credit where credit is do - I got this solution from the above link - it seems as if people arehaving similar problems on the Mixamo community forums across the board- seems like this is a engine-wide glitch. Yet - Mixamo - if they want to be a real solution to 3D animation - needs to address this - and just put out more tutorials in general! Furthermore, for God's sake! Please give us some options to customize some clothing in Fuse! If not - create a marketplace for clothing - do what you go to do - but I cannot use any of the assets in my final product because they have such limited options. Anyway - forgive the rant - thank you everyone for helping out! I hope this solution helps someone else!

Here is a video you need not watch it full just check the settings as shown during import.Let me explain what is done in the initial part of the video for your convinience . the speaker uploads the model then rigs it and downloads the animation. The main thing happen next. watch the full video if you want or watch from 20th minute of how to import . Hope this helps.
