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"

Imported animations come up empty

As title says.

I imported a skeletal mesh from blender, everything fine. The main root bone is called just "root".

Then i go to import an animation, i select the previous imported skeleton, and the animation come up empty.

I dont have a clue whats going on. I dont know if im doing something wrong in Blender when exporting or doing something wrong on UE when importing.

I already tried this method with the same result.

I noticed that in the output log i get tons of bone transform errors i also dont know why.

Thanks in advance

Product Version: UE 4.18

Blender to Unreal can sometimes be a nightmare. I've made tutorials about it but I handle everything on a case by case basis as I sometimes still get the strangest errors.If you're willing to share the file I can have a look for you and maybe provide a solution.

Know this sounds like a no-brainer, but check and make sure your entire hierarchy is parented to your root bone (i.e. not having multiple roots). I was having same issue, but unlike most times UE wasn't spitting errors out at me for some reason. Hope this helps.
