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 find static mesh for Static Mesh Actor on Datasmithimport

I am trying to import an architectural scene which was exported from Max2019 via the Datasmith Exporter into UE 4.21.1 and Unreal tells me it cannot find any static meshes for any static mesh actor (The scene stays empty as there are only actors without any meshes linked to them).

Any ideas how to fix this?

Product Version: UE 4.21
