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"

Sockets don't update position on a reimport.

When reimporting a mesh with sockets, any socket changes/additions done do not get reimported with the mesh.

  1. Create a sphere and a locator. (I used Maya)

  2. Rename the locator to SOCKET_Whatever and parent it to the sphere

  3. Export then import the sphere into Unreal

  4. View the mesh and the socket location

  5. Go back to Maya and the sphere and move the locator somewhere else

  6. Duplicate it a few times and move those around too.

  7. Export out.

  8. Right click the asset in unreal, click Reimport

  9. View the mesh and socket locations and notice nothing you just did came through.

If this is intended, as the sockets can be manipulated in Unreal, can we get an option somewhere to reimport from file and stomp whatever changes are there?
