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 to properly remove occluded meshes?

Hi, I am using data smith and I tried following the tutorial https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Studio/Datasmith/HowTo/Jacketing, to learn how to use jacketing to remove occluded static actors.

However, none of them work. When I did the jacketing part with Mesh Action level, it always says 0 triangles deleted, and 0 occluded components deleted.

Furthermore, when I tried to do blueprint scripting according to the tutorial, I keep getting a crash because I always pass in a NULL jacketing option to the "Simplify Assembly" blueprint node. I can't really initialize the jacketing option variable, because I don't know how to create one.

Also, it is impossible to debug for me, as the C++ source for MeshProcessingLibrary is completely closed source. Can someone help me with this, or at least point me a way to get the source for Unreal Studio so I can debug?

Please refer to the dedicated Unreal Studio support site for the current issues you are facing: https://unrealstudiohelp.epicgames.com/s/

I'd like to ask that you please submit 2 separate tickets. One for the jacketing issue; and a second ticket for the crash, including full reproduction steps.

Source code is not available for the Datasmith plugin.
