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"

I just created a AssetManager that loads SkeletalMeshes (and materials) at runtime. I'm doing it for a Character Customization feature, but in my case I have to import all the meshes to unreal before hand - in order to create the .uasset file. If this somehow can help you, let me know.

This could be very difficult to do, because the code you need to import fbx files is part of the editor code which you are not able and not allowed to use in your game, you could try to implement this with c++ but you have to write a lot of code on your own, if it is even possible. Take a look at the unreal code to see how they create skelatal meshes but there is no simple solution to this problem and you would have to dig a lot in the code.

You would probably need to integrate AutoDesk's FBX SDK into your project.

Once you have done that it should be a sinch ;).

Are there any tutorials or guides that could help me accomplish this? Even a documentation would help on integrating the sdk with ue4 or any additional info.

It's not a complete tutorial, but I wrote on my blog about linking the shipped version of Autodesk's FBXSDK for runtime use. You might want to look into FbxImporter.h in UnrealEd engine model for starters (4.21). Ping me if you need any pointers.
