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"

Accessing Editor Source Code for Importing Objects

Hey everyone,

can anyone tell me if there is a way to access the Source Code of the Unreal Engine Editor to find the code snippet that is responsible for importing assets once you drag them into your Editor window or use the "Import" feature? And would it be able to use parts of that code to create objects at runtime?

I need this specifically for IES profiles which are just text files, but get converted into Texture Light Profiles once you import them into the Engine and I want to be able to dynamically read a string to create such an object in C++ code that I can then call using Blueprints.

Thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.18
