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"

Crash when trying to import 3dsmax/FBX

Hi all,

I am attempting to import an FBX file into unreal that was made in 3dsmax. However it imports everything just fine until it gets to #1640 of 1700+ and just crashes. No crash report or anything. My unreal just freezes. It hangs up on that step every time I've tried to import.

I'm able to import other FBX files, so I don't know what's wrong with this one. Gdrive link here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Tg3gKFi0JGTJeikz_qotm9ODsGLD6rpv

If anyone can figure out why this is, I would very much appreciate the help! I can't finish my project without this :(

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.18

Hello Aerozure VR,

I believe this is occurring because of an error with the original file itself. Attempts on my end to open this file caused errors in both 3dsmax and Maya. This could mean that there is an issue with how the file is exporting or the original mesh itself.

I followed the step by step editing. UWMap, then Steamroller then export smooth out geometries. Anything else ? to avoid another crash?
