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"

Import only Material Slots

Can an option be added to add material slots but not the materials? I use Sketchup to model and don't need the materials but do need the slots. If I import without materials I don't get all the slots. If I do import with materials I get the slots but I also get a bunch of materials that I then have to delete. If there is already a better way please tell me but if not a little tick box that says only import material slots would save me soooo much time.

Yes..!!! You Can I use Maya but Will Be working On All Softwares. Just Uncheck the box Import Materials when You Import to Engine. But Make Sure that In Your 3D software that You have applied Different Materials so it can read in Unreal as separate Material slot.

That’s the problem. I have different materials setup in sketchup but unless I actually import the materials it doesn’t give me all my slots. It used to but not anymore. Also if I update my fbx I loose my slots. I have to delete the fbx and reimport because the update function does not give me the option to import materials.

Just a FYI, if you answer questions about programs you don't use it breaks this whole system of support. People who start reading who may actually have answers just skip it because they think this problem is being fixed or a solution is being worked on...If you don't use the main program that the person is using then don't try to answer the question.
