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"

Skeletal mesh not showing on Android Device


I have the following situation. It is my first time using Unreal Engine and I wanted to try to load a character and make a quick project to see how it looks in game. I imported a skeletal mesh with no animations and using the third person template launched it on my Android device but in does not show, it is the level because I can collide with it. If I import it as a normal mesh and place it is shows. I also tried importing a Daz3D character and I have the same situation.

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.21

The mesh is a human character so it doesn't exceed the vertices and bone limits. I read in the forums and the answer hub that more people had the same problem after upgrading from version 4.2 to 4.21 and call it a bug. I could not find a solution searching the net

I don't know how much matters but the mesh has a lot of morph targets
