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"

Cant see imported mesh

Hi, i have a scene in unreal, and i wanted to import a small plant from c4d. The mesh is imported, but when i drag it to the scene it is not visible. The bounds scale are set to 100, Visible is ticked in the rendering tab and if i set the mesh to position 0 0 0 and scale 100 100 100 i still cant see it. Also ill mention that my scene that i imported the plant to is also imported from c4d, and it worked well (i imported it exactly the same way as the plant). What happends when im dragging it to the viewport: https://gyazo.com/7d6c2fcbe2d33ca5277363a9176b6f17

Are the normals reversed? Try making the material double sided and if it shows up.

Check your asset's size. Maybe it is too big or small, or your pivot way significantly far from the object so you cant see it even its in the scene (check the asset in your modelling program, is it aligned correctly).

As i can see its an obj file with not being sure and the size of the asset in your project "338x75x78". Did you tried to export it as and fbx file? Or is it possible to send us that asset for we can check?

i also tried fbx before obj, i tried both and i think i can get the asset to a new project, but not to my current scene, only if this is the first asset i put into the viewport
