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"

Hi all,

I've submitted a ticket for the crash that can be tracked here: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-38935

@CosmoGorynych - Thank you for the test asset! That made things so much easier to get this reported as quickly as possible!

For future reference, if you're ever getting a crash or suspect you have a bug please post in the Bug Reports section. We actively monitor that section and sometimes when bugs/crashes are posted in other sections we may not see them immediately to get them reported and fixed!

Hello I experimented with the model and I wanted to give my findings. Upon import there is object called Dummy001. I don't use 3ds Max or Maya. I mainly use blender so correct me if I am wrong. Is this the PIVOT point? This causes all the problems for me. As soon as I delete it no more Unreal crashes and everything imports corrently whether I select SKELETAL MESH or STATIC MESH.

It's not a pivot. It is a zero-sized object required to make a group/linking, which is required for a non-skinned animation. If there is no top-level container of all the other objects, then UE4 won't import animations properly.

So, basically, deleting a dummy is similar to turning this animated mesh into a static one.
