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"

UV's are overlapping, Second UV channel created and it still gives an error

Hey! I've imported several models from cinema4d. When baking the lights unreal tells me the the UV's are overlapping. So I made a second UV channel inside Unreal, did an auto unwrap on channel 1 and I selected channel 1 as the lighting channel. And still. Nothing changes. Does anyone have an idea what might be going wrong?

This is how I set my lighting settings for the mesh.

And this is my UV map on channel 1.

The light map generator is far from perfect and I've run I to issues my self. You're going to need to manually setup the light map uvs or at least provide a better u wrap for it to work from. It has particular issues with mass overlapping.

Thanks for your suggestion. I'm going back to cinema4d to change my assets. I already was afraid there was no other option.
