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"

Apply compression doesn´t work 4.14.x

Hi, here is my problem, when I import a new animation UE asks me to apply compression, I click Apply but nothing happens and the button remains active. When I restart UE and load the project it just crash because of this. It happens to me only on 4.14(I tried every official hotfix). I´m working on 4.13.2 at the moment, but 4.14 is better in my opinion and my project was really starting to kick with it...sad I hope you can help in finding a solution for this, thank you anyway!

Product Version: UE 4.14

Hi syq,

I haven't seen the editor ever ask you to apply compression. The "Apply Compression" button is just persistent and only needs to be clicked after editing compression settings. When you import, it defaults to Bitwise Compression.

Hi, thanks for your reply, I know it should not ask for compression and in fact on 4.13 I can work well that behaviour happens to me only on 4.14...I will wait for 4.15 and retry, but I´m sure I´m not the only one experiencing this because I did another post on the matter and another user replied to my post with same problem... thanks for your help anyway

There is no guarantee that this will be fixed in 4.15 if I can't get the necessary info to enter a bug report. Can you attach the fbx for the skeletal mesh and animation that you're attempting to import? If you'd like it to stay private, you can PM me a download link on the forums.

You can try 4.15 now if you want, but it likely won't be fixed since we never had a bug report for it.

I tried importing your files and it never asked me to apply compression. Is this still occurring in 4.14.3 for you?

You aren't on a custom engine build, are you?

Hi, No I´m not on custom engine, i´m using the official releases of the engine... Yes this will occur everytime I try here on 4.14...I redid a lot of stuff in 4.13 which does not present me that problem, and I migrated everything to 4.15 when it became available, and now everything works well, I will stay on 4.15 I have no need to use 4.14 again...Just for your knowledge, I found one thing which doesn´t work in 4.15, or at least it does not behave like it did before, and is the "Set Child Actor Class" Node, it just make the child actor disappear, but I already found a solution for this...(about the compression problem, probably when I first opened my old project with 4.14 I converted it in place and maybe something corrupted, but it worked before, now I´m using safer ways to do things xD, and my project goes really good!!)Thanks for your efforts!!

Hi syq,

Please report the "Set Child Actor Class" issue in a separate thread. Even with a workaround, it sounds worth reporting.
