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"

[Closed] [Question] FBX Skeletal Mesh will not import

I have a mesh thats been rigged with humanIK (Want to use the maya rigging tools but doesn't work with out mocap software as we can't add a root bone) that I want to bring into engine but it keeps giving me a "Failed to import" error that doesn't really tell me anything... Ive poked around to see if i could figure it out myself and have a sneaking suspicion that its to do with Maya exporting groups and humanIK controls into the .fbx and the engine doesn't ignore them on import...

Any help would be appreciated.

Rename this to .fbx

Rename this to .mb

1 answer: sort voted first

I downloaded the FBX file and opened in 3dsmax. The mesh has no skinning on it so Rocket wont be able to import it as skeletal mesh. I was able to import your goblin as static mesh (which is what Rocket selected by default) without problem. Another thing is Rocket uses FBX 2013 so you might want to export your assets in 2013 format. When i imported your Goblin i got a version mismatch message. :)

One more thing: When you want to attach your assets with your post, you can zip them up and attach here. :)

Thanks for the tip turns out there was a setting in the fbx exporter that was unchecked in relation to skins and deformers I'm not sure if its on by default but it was off now.
