I’ve been struggling to get this to work. While I can import .fbx files into Unreal, I cannot through Datasmith or Dataprep. I can import .udatasmith files however. I have enabled the FBX importer plugin and tried this on two different engine versions (4.26.2 and 4.27.0) and both do not work. I have the latest graphics drivers. I have tried both ASCII and binary .fbx files.
The error in output says this:
