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"

Problems importing 3dsMax ForestPack Pro into Unreal 4

Maybe It's just me not knowing what I am doing, but...

Whenever I try to import a ForestPack asset into Unreal 4, something usually goes wrong.

I am using datasmith to import them.

Sometimes the imported materials all turn black, in these cases the imported lightmaps are messed up aswell.

Then there are the times where the imported model comes in and none of the opacity masks are working for the leaf textures, I've tried messing around with the material editor to no avail.

And other times they come in perfectly. Only problem here is that we don't use these models...

It seems that certain trees have their own certain problems upon export/import.

Does anybody have anything that could help?

Product Version: UE 4.21

We've been aware of some challenges with importing ForestPack via Datasmith, and have made some improvements for the upcoming 4.22 release.

Currently 4.22 is available as a Preview for testing, and I encourage you to test it out and see if there are improvements or if your issues persist. More information here: https://forums.unrealengine.com/unreal-engine/unreal-studio/1586426-unreal-studio-4-22-preview

For any issues, I suggest you report them at our dedicated Unreal Studio Support site - https://unrealstudiohelp.epicgames.com/s/
