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"

Blender animation to UE problems, not importing properly(have pics)

So I just spent 5 hours rigging a running animation for the UE mannequin in blender. Go to import the fbx and every error possible that can show up for an import, did.

to walk you through it: I exported the mannequin from UE as an fbx imported to blender and checked "Automatic Bone Orientation" under Armatures. Animated it, and sent back out as fbx. When I bring it back in and try to attach the manne skeleton to my animation fbx, its totally corrupted and jumbled up.

I have already confirmed that not checking Automatic Bone Orientation and re-importing the manne to UE works and does not corrupt the mesh.

The question, is there a work around for this. Because I can import the animation and not attach the UE skele, but theres no texture on him and he seems low res/poly almost.
