    Nothing to be sorry about, it works quite well as it is. Good luck with your thesis.

      Hello alfalfasprossen,
      i would like to express my satisfaction with the amazing connection you made with the plugins, i had successfully installed and compiled the plugins, the connection is correct and the workflow is acceptable if you do not edit the scene i want to export from maya.
      So it fit well in my case and the current state, but that would be awesome if if was possible to define all the various path per objects, but the drag n drop within the content browser work too but will corrupt the connection with maya. so that would be something important in your next build, good luck with your thesis anyway and thank you again for the plugin, also hope that the hook you need from the engine would be added without pain, but you must to submit a pull request by yourself, epic can't do anything you that, so github is an obligation

          Keep it up bud! Can't wait till you get finished with Maya and turn to 3DS! Good Luck!

            Just noticed what's a bit odd is that the pivot is reset to 0, 0, 0 every time I hit "Send Selected To Editor". Also results in the same pivot in UE4.

            Actually it only happens on some meshes.

              I tried to get this to work in my maya, but couldn't.
              I don't usually have problems adding plugins and custom scripts.
              So a quick refresher on how to install this to maya and ue4 would be greatly appreciated.

                Assuming you have the plugin compiled, you're probably stumbling over the whole path/Python thing. Here's what I did:

                I have the m2u Python code in a directory "d:\GitHub\m2u". I then set an environment variable in Windows (8.1 in my case) with name PYTHONPATH to "D:\GitHub". So without the m2u directory. You can do this in Windows in Control Panel > System and Security >System >Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Environment Variables > System Variables.

                Then you can create a shelf button in Maya with the following Python command:

                Code:
                """ maya startup file
                
                called by a shelf button or so, will initialize the system
                to use the maya program modules and create the UI attached to maya
                """
                
                import m2u
                
                m2u.core.initialize("maya", "ue4")
                
                # create UI here, send the initialized m2u module to the ui if necessary (max)
                # in maya it should be in the maya namespace ?
                
                #createUI(m2u)
                
                #TODO check if pyQt is installed, if not, use the simple internal maya UI
                
                from m2u.maya import mayaInternalUI
                mayaInternalUI.createUI()

                  Added button "Export Selected To Editor" that only exports to UE4 but places nothing in the level. Good to update existing meshes or in cases where the mesh has been made into a Blueprint. Also fixed the pivot so it no longer centers on export.

                  Made a pull request. Until it's updated you can get it from my fork at

                  https://bitbucket.org/Gigantoad/m2u/branch/develop

                  Of course it's probably **** and may not adhere to concepts of alfalfasprossen But it seems to work for now.

                    Awesome stuff guys. Looks amazing. Curious, has alfalfasprossen still been working on this?

                      No life sign from him in a while. No updates on BitBucket since August. Guess he's still busy with the thesis.

                          Ah. Understandable. Hope things calm down soon for him. Thanks.

                            Hi,

                            I'm trying to run the plugin with UE 4.5, but I'm getting compile errors
                            error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'Editor/UnrealEd/Private/FbxImporter.h': No such file or directory

                            Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

                            Thanks!

                                So Epic just intergrated my pull request for the little alteration that we needed to make to each UE4 version so far. I was getting fed up having to do that and since it can be assumed that alfalfasprossen seems to have other priorities on his mind at the moment I went ahead and submitted it. This also potentially means that the plugin could now be distributed for the binary version. Guess we'll see when the change arrives in a final build (actually not sure if this will be in 4.6 or 4.7).

                                Also, the plugin is going to break in 4.6 but I have the necessary changes working in the preview. I guess I need to ask, does anyone besides me even use this plugin at the moment?
