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"

Visual Defects on Imported Models

We are seeing visual defects in materials applied to some imported .fbx models when rendered in UE4 4.4. These materials render perfectly in both Modo and Maya.

This occurs with both Planar and "automatic" UV Mapping. It occurs with both "substances" and Materials based on .png textures.

Here is an example circular model with a grid material and the defect is visually obvious: alt text

Attached please find sample model and textures to duplicate issue. BTW, this also occurs with other models. link text

Actually, this link you posted does explain the problem pretty clearly. But, we were not able to get the fix to work as described.

The actual fix for us was: Open the Static Mesh in Unreal, and at LOD Element 0 , in the build setting drop down... Use Full Precision UV was not selected.

This needs to be selected, and the problem was fixed.

Hey Macktek -

You are having an issue with your vertex triangulation in the mesh. This triangulation is causing your material to distort. There is a great explanation and example of this issue in the Forums by my colleague Tim Hobson, https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?14028-Random-Streaks-In-Mesh&p=87673&viewfull=1#post87673

Take a look at that and let me know if you have any further questions -

Eric Ketchum
