Maya to UE4 import - smoothing groups issue

Hi All,

I’m sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but I couldn’t find anything on the forums.

I’m trying to import a rubbish little tank I made on maya into UE4 just as a learning exercise (i’m kind of new on both programs)

i’ve checked import smoothing groups on the export and i’m importing normals but when it goes into UE the smoothing has gone.

I feel like i’m missing something simple but i can’t work it out, any ideas?

also I made the tank in a few different pieces all grouped into one in the outliner but when it’s imported into UE there is only one slot for materials instead of 6-7. help on that would be appreciated too haha.

Thanks in advance x
