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"

There are some things you could look into, make sure you are only importing bones + mesh, if you got any rigging it might import with strange results. Check so that the joint orientation for you root bone is the same as the world accis and have its rotation zeroed out. ue4 uses z as up accis you seems to be using x, this should not be a problem tbh since I do believe fbx sets the up accis on export - but it might be, (never used 3d max, maya has no problem with this but - might be worth checking up).

// hope that helped.

Not a Max user but lookup XForm, freeze transform and maybe some rigging Tutorials they usually cover this in the last steps. Also make sure to Export with the correct Coordinate System.

Good Luck =)
