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"

Cannot change object materials with datasmith plugin

After importing model to unreal with datasmith, I found I couldn't modify the material of model like I was used to with other models. (I selected the model, and double clicked the static mesh button, in the preview window I could change the material, but it didn't affect the object in the scene??

Did you find a work around or solution for this?

I have found that disabling displacement and tessellation of materials allows me to change materials of geometry imported with datasmith - must be a bug

oh okay, I'll try that. What I did was to directly change the mesh in the asset folder

same thing for me,


and I just got fobbed off to the reports page.

It's still occurring, and I'm no wiser as to why.
