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"

How do I properly import 3d models?

I am a total noob at UE4 and I am having trouble importing a building model and adding into the game. When I import the folder there are only a group of white materials, and a group of static meshes. I don't know how to make it a part of the game. Please Help.

Product Version: UE 4.19

once you have dragged the assets into the asset browser just drag them from the asset browser into the viewport.

The white materials are the basic "blank" materials if you leave them as is your model will be a basic white. If you want to change the material on your model then just edit those white materials (add textures etc) then the model will update as you do. Good luck.

This is a good youtube playlist to get you started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4XlBKeE46E&list=PLZlv_N0_O1gasd4IcOe9Cx9wHoBB7rxFl

I had to check the "combine meshes" box and it worked fine. Thank you for your support.
