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"

How to export/import materials

Hi everyone,

Currently i am working on materials. I want to store ready-to-use materials in an archive folder and want to use them later. That means i need a solution for creating materials in a previous version of UE4 (atm 4.4) and using them in a later version of UE4 (4.5+)

What is best workflow to handle this.

(Just copying uasset files cannot be the solution cause they have a small file size compared to the size of tga files that are used in the material)

Thanks in advance!

Coping uassets is only solution (other then migration tool, but it does essentially the same thing) they small size because they not containing textures which is helt in diffrent uassets which you need copy too , material uassets just refrence them (which also means you need to hold the same path structure)

In current engine version (4.17), there is an Export option for a material, which does an export in text format. However there is no import option... any idea? There also a Migrate option, but this one also migrates dependencies which we don't necessarilly want.

Thanks.

I think you also can keep older projects and just migrate materials to newer projects (with newer version).
