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"

Temporar freeze on importing more animations and fast clicking

This is possibly more of an inconvenience than a bug, that's why I haven't posted this so far. I think this was there all the time in UE.

When I'm importing more animations at the same time (e.g. copy 20 animations into the project folder) and start clicking on Import (I think same applies when clicking on Import All, which will still cause the import dialogue pop up for every of the 20 animations), if I click fast enough, the whole import process will freeze for some time.

By clicking fast I don't mean necessarily some crazy button smashing just to make it hard for UE :). It's more of a "sitting there and just waiting for the import dialogue to pop up for every animation and when the dialogue appears and by chance I'm fast enough" the freeze will happen. This freeze lasts long enough to be noticeable and inconvenient, sometimes it can take 10-30 seconds for UE to resume the import process.

Judging from looking and the progress bar, this is some very specific period of time when UE detects the new animation, pops up the dialogue, but still didn't have enough time to "process something that is needed for the import to continue".

Hi Tom,

I can't seem to reproduce this freeze on my end. While there are many pauses during the import process for multiple assets, it sounds like you're talking about a true freeze (spinning blue circle for a mouse and everything). Do you think this could be a compatibility issue on a low performance processor or perhaps a conflict with another piece of software that you're using?
