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"

UVs not calculating correctly on import

When importing a mesh and texture into UE4, the UVs aren't calculating correctly:

First, am I correct in the assumption that it's a UV import problem?

It looks right in the original program. I'm using a model imported from Daz3d (older generation, Michael 4):

I've tried every import option I can think of: compute normals, import normals, import normals and tangents, mick t space, and built in:

I've also tried every combination of export options in the exporting program. As a result, I've had a lot of failed attempts.

I didn't have this issue with another newer generation model I imported from that program:

I've also tried exporting to Blender and remapping from there, without much luck:

I'm running out of ideas and feeling pretty harumph. I'd greatly appreciate being steered in the right direction. Thanks guys!

If I remove the normal maps (leaving only the base texture), the figure matches itself:

But without any normal maps, I have to max roughness (hair doesn't shine like skin), leaving it flat and lifeless. It doesn't match my game world and doesn't feel realistic.

Is the problem with the normals of my character skeletal mesh, or the normal maps that were generated? How might I go about fixing this?
