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 KingShieldsiii,

The ART tool is no longer included in the engine, but instead is found on the marketplace (search "ArtV1"). Please follow the How to Download and How to Install links in the marketplace description.

You'll find it in 4.15/Engine/Plugins/Marketplace after hitting "Install to Engine" instead of the old Engine/Extras location.

Hi, Matt. I'm trying to install ART for UE4.17 in Maya 2018. ARTV1 plugin cannot be installed to UE4.17 right now. I tried installing UE4.16, and it installs but the userSetup.py is not there.

Does it mean that ART is deprecated and only for 4.15 now?

So I have located the plugin file, userSetup.py, but it throws an error in maya 2016:

// Error: file: D:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2016/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 781: (userSetup) // // Warning: file: D:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2016/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 781: No initializePlugin() or initializePlugin2() function

Any ideas what's going on?

Hi, I'm trying to install ART for UE4.18 in Maya 2017. I can't run 'Character Rig Creator' menu in maya but i can run the others menu.

Error: ImportError: file C:/Program Files/Epic Games/UE_4.18/Engine/Extras/Maya_AnimationRiggingTools/MayaTools/General/Scripts\Modules\facial\face.py line 10: No module named PySide

1) I found a face.py in Locate the file, but it can't import to maya. 2) I check in a face.py at line 10: from PySide import QtGui, QtCore

Unbelievable that this is the solution if you can't download the tool with the latest engine version. The fact I have to download 4.15 JUST to get the ART tool is ridiculous.

Hello, my name is SENDGEN which is awesome and significant. There are no others and it means St. John in Old English.

I am working with unreal engine 4.19.2 so thank you for all the info on this thread.

I'm writing this simply to combat the negativity of people like PlayingKarrde above.

The fact that he, being PlayingKarrde, can simply download something and get something like the ART tool is down right amazing. This tool is amazing. Downloading is amazing. Thank you Unreal Engine your amazing.
