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"

Maya Animations Not Importing into 4.21.1

When I try to import a Maya 2018 animation and model into UE4.21, the skeletal mesh, physics asset, and model all come in, but the animation asset is not.

Have you made sure you have turned on export animation and bake animation in the export window in maya?

Also checked the import box for UE that says "animation"?

It turns out I think I had some sort of constraint issue. But for future reference, as long as those things are checked, it should work?

I'm doing it up to 50 times a day as I adjust my animations in Maya LT 2018 and import them to UE 4.21. Having no issues whether I am importing a full skeletal + anims or just the animations.
