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"

How correctly import animation from Blender to UE4?

Hello, I created my Mesh and also one animation to it, but here is problem. When I am trying to export it from Blender and import it to UE, Mesh looks good, but animation doesn´t work. I don´t know why... I am also tried export and import only animation, but still I have that issue. Can someone help me?

I was made heart by that tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwPhsY0Plr0 and animation by that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2RaLOahJOc, but why it doesn´t work? When I want import skeleton for that, I can´t, when I select it, nothing happen, there is still NONE. alt text I wanted use Skeleton Heart, what was imported with Heart Mesh, Heart Animation (what doesn´t work...), it imported that: (but that is only main export from Mesh, I also exported Heart throbbing as animation from Blender.alt text

Here you can see I have two files alt text

And animation in Heart and Heart-throbbing don´t working. PS: In Blender it works, I tried it.

With these settings it finally work! Where was mistake in my settings?

@mngpssn or @mojay, don´t you know, how to add animation to object? Via blueprint? Or how? Isn´t there any tutorial? If yes, link please.

Hi Renzotom

I would suggest making a blueprint from your heart mesh see (see HeartBP)alt text and in the event graph hooking up the animation (see BPAnim)alt text. You can then drag the BP into your scene and playalt text.

As to your first question it looks as though you didn't uncheck All Actions NLA Strips and Key All Bones when exporting from blenderalt text.

As for tutorials etc look on the learn tab of the Launcher which also has a link to video tutorials. Else do a web search or look through these pages or on YouTube. mojay

When you export from Blender ensure that Apply Modifiers under Geometries tab is unchecked.

No :( Animation still doesn´t working :( . That animation is about heart throbbing, but nothing happening in UE4 and in Blender it works. alt text

Nobody don´t know that?

Renzotom Looking at the above photo you only have one frame in your 'animation'. I can't say why but you may want to recheck your export/import settings.

avatar image mojay Mar 17 '17 at 02:41 PM

P.S. You did select Mesh in the 'Main' tab when exporting from Blender didn't you?

avatar image Renzotom Mar 17 '17 at 08:12 PM

My key frames in Blender:

alt text alt text

While exporting I am using:

alt text alt text alt text alt text

Animation importing to UE4:

alt text alt text

After I click on import, it is imported (see above what all is there)

And after there is little error log:

Next I turn on animation window with Heart Throbbing Anim and what I see... only object without animation.

Do ue4 accept that blender bones bind with vertex group not bone strength?

avatar image dajayalol Dec 08 '18 at 01:03 PM

i mean do we have to use bone envelopes?
