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"

The Unreal Engine is able to import the 3d asset file format of 3dsmax owner Autodesk. It is the .fbx filetype. And this is already the full association between 3dsmax and UE4. You can export assets as .fbx files and import them easily in the unreal engine.

3dsmax is a professional tool and will be able to create all the assets you want for the unreal engine. But beware that it is a) very expensive and b) not so easy to learn for a beginner.
