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"

Datasmith options missing in 4.21

I have recently started a new project in 4.21 that needs to use datasmith. There are no options in 4.21 for datasmith or to start a studio project. I have used datasmith in 4.19 and I am enrolled in the beta. I have followed other post and checked to see if the plug-in was installed, it is not. I have also looked to manually install but I no longer have that option. Under my studio beta options the only item I can select is exporter plugins. How do I regain the ability to use datasmith in 4.21?

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hi cgisley.

I've got a few different notes for you, and I'm just going to list out the highlights so this doesn't get too wordy or share personal information here.

  • Your access to Datasmith was inherited through the organization you work for which is evaluating a custom license for the Unreal Engine

  • That evaluation has expired, so your inherited permission to Datasmith has as well.

  • You had also registered for the free beta of Unreal Studio, which grants Datasmith access as well, but your expired evaluation was overriding it. I have removed you from your organization's subscription, so you should now fall back on your free beta access and see the option to install the plugin again.

  • If you wish, you can likely extend your evaluation by emailing your account manager at Epic, who is CC'd on the onboarding email you received on July 2nd.

  • You still have access to the UDN, our private support website. Please use the UDN for any questions you have to ensure visibility from Epic staff. This here is the community-supported public Answerhub site, which looks similar, but is not guaranteed to receive a response from Epic.

I hope this helps!
