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"

Import LODs from Maya 2018.3

Hello all,

I'm trying to import modular Object that has 2 LODs into Unreal Engine 4. I've created the model and LODs within Maya 2018.3. I went over the documentation on how to export and import a static mesh with LODs -> https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Content/ImportingContent/ImportingLODs.

However, it seems that the documentation is outdated, because in Maya there's a specific LOD system now in place (see screenshot). alt text

I've exported the model as an .FBX 2016 file (animation included) and I've checked "Import Mesh LODs" in the Unreal Engine import settings. But when I open the static mesh editor, there's only one LOD group. I've also unchecked "Custom" on the LOD picker panel, but still no luck.

Can someone tell me, how I can correctly import my LODs from Maya without having to set them up manually?

Thanks for any help.

Regards, DigitalGreenTea
