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"

[Feature Request] Apply Scale

Dear UE Development Team,

As for me, it would be very convenient if we could somehow apply the scale of a mesh/BP to return it to 1,1,1 without changing the actual size of an actor.

Let's say I've created a model in Blender and exported it into UE and it turned out to be a bit larger than I had expected, so I can scale it down to 0.9,0.9,0.9 and apply scale so that it would be 1,1,1, but the actual size would be 90% of the original by every axis.

Of course if I use my own model I can resize it in Blender and reimport, but if someone gets assets created by someone else it could be really frustrating to resize an actor each time it's added to the scene.

Maybe the same could be done with Rotation, I think in some cases that might be useful.

Thank you in advance for considering.

Product Version: UE 4.21

I might be wrong, but if I understood right what you are requesting this is already present in the editor. The first time you import a mesh you can set its scale and rotation. Also in the mesh properties (opening a mesh from the content browser), you can set it scale and click reimport, this will reimport it with the new scale applied. This way the mesh in the world will be displayed with a scale of 1 even if the size is different from the original mesh file.
