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"

Export as an FBX using 2013 (4.1.1 UE4) and when 4.2 is released you'll export using FBX 2014.

In the settings check the appropriate settings you'll need based on what you're exporting.

in the scaling section make sure to change it to Centimeters otherwise your mesh will be scaled down significantly.

This info should give you some more reference to look at.

I do everything as shown on either esport from 3ds and import to ue4 guides, but i still get this result in many materials:

I realize it has something to do with the way textures are configured, because they're diffuse in 3ds but import as normal, how can i solve this problem?

Thank you very much :)
