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"

What's the differences between blueprint/C++ projects and Unreal studio projects?

I knew a little about unreal studio,and I tried to use datasmith to convert my max file into udatasmith file instead of a FBX file.Cuz I thought it is more data-friendly for UE4.However, when I installed unreal studio, it lanched a new Epic Lancher(for enterprise) maybe? So,the question is if I don't change my UE4 version into enterprise verison,can I use datasmith importer? Thanks a lot.

Product Version: UE 4.21

First to clarify, we only have one Launcher used across the board for everyone...including game and non-game developers, and by game players. During your Unreal Studio registration, a setting may have gotten enabled to hide the video game store (to make the launcher appear more 'professional'). If this is the case, you can just open the launcher's Settings and un-check "Hide Game Library".

Additionally, nothing really changes with the Unreal Engine either. We only have one Unreal Editor, used by all developer types. The Unreal Studio beta just allows you to install a plugin (Datasmith) that provides the new import functionality, and a few other extras like the Unreal Studio template projects.

You can read more about the Unreal Studio template projects here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Studio/UnrealStudioProjectTemplates

Yes, all the options are available to you depending on the needs of your project.
