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"

Importing FBX files with material using assimp

I was successful in importing the mesh using the runtime mesh loader plugin (which uses assimp) but I am unable to import the material along with the mesh. I tried to import the material using Dynamic Object Loader (https://wiki.unrealengine.com/index.php?title=Dynamic_Load_Object∾tion=edit ) but my ue4 crashes when I try to assign the material.

 mi.my_material = Cast<UMaterialInterface>(StaticLoadObject(UMaterialInterface::StaticClass(), NULL, TEXT("path_to_material")));
 if (mi.my_material != nullptr) {
         mi.my_material = UMaterialInstanceDynamic::Create(mat, nullptr);
             UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("mat null\n"));

Can you please suggest any method to import the material along with the mesh at runtime.
