Keep Pivot Point on Import

Is it finally possible in Unreal Engine 5 to keep the pivot point of an fbx-mesh (exported from Blender) when importing it?

It is baffling to me that this is not the default behaviour. I cannot be expected to import 100 meshes and manually change the pivot point inside Unreal for every one of them…

I’ve just released a plugin that allows you to bulk change pivot (and scale/rot):

Hi! The pivot will be where your model crossing the 0,0,0 on blender. So if you select all your model, and hit shift+C(move the 3d cursor to center), and hit shift+S->selection to cursor all your models pivot point(with the modell together) will jump to 0,0,0. Trust me, I am using this method since years and no probleme:)
