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"

Question about measures, scales, and modelling.

Hi,I'm a noob trying to start here. I know that UE4 works with a 1 cm == 1 uu ratio. I work with the cm unit scale in Maya. The thing is that even having measured the real-life measures of an object, when i place it inside UE4 it looks too small.

I'm trying (just for excercise to make the Tyrell's Office from Blade Runner. alt text

So, using the characters as a scale.(Knowing that f. ex Harrison was 1.85m tall, i've managed to set the width of the columns in 2 meters aprox, and the height in about almost 8 meters. Therefore 200 Maya units wide, 785 height. alt text But in Unreal they had to be scaled up to look a little bit proper. Even when i create inside UE4 a basic cube brush and it says is 1x1x1 meter it looks too small for a real 1x1x1 meter.

I don't know how to properly model my assets to have a proper set of scale inside UE4 since the character seems to be too big (he doesn't even fit in the standard Doorframe asset that comes with the editor!) So a little bit of advice and guidance, please?

Product Version: UE 4.15
