I have been using Unity3d, but I wanted to give a try to UE4. But I seem to have trouble importing animations into UE.
I have FXB files that contain only bones and animation. I want to import them and use with my rigged characters. On import menu, I select “FXB animation” as my filetype. When trying to import any animated fxb file, there comes this unspecified error message:
Failed to import ‘…/…/…/…/…/…/…/blaa blaa/80_13.fbx’. Failed to create asset ‘/Game/80_13’
This happen with BOTH my own made animations (yes, FXB2014) AND 3rd party animations. There is no further explanation on UE log. These files work without problem in Unity3d.
If I try to import FXB file with bones, animation AND mesh, there is no error. But unfortunately, this method does not suit for my workflow. I would need to rework every single animation again and again to insert a mesh into them just to be able to import them into UE. Please tell me there is no such limitation in UE?
Search did not return any usable results. Could somebody be kind enough to tell me how do I import animated fxb into UE4?
