So basically i have a map that i’m using just to edit all the props that come along with making a complete ArchViz project, things like chairs and tables etc.
The idea was to have all that stuff in one map, and then on an individual project basis just migrate over the assets i needed to fill the building up. I’ve been making good progress so far, but i seem to have run into a bit of an issue. What i’ve been doing so far is pulling all the static meshes onto one big floor space, and then editing the materials by dragging them onto the model in the viewport, i know the other method is to edit the mesh itself inside the static mesh editor and pull the materials in that way, but it seemed to be a lot slower of a process. However, after testing a few and migrating them into another project, i see that it only migrates the original static mesh with its original blank materials as it would appear in the static mesh editor. I figured out a bit of a workaroung by creating a new static mesh off the one that exists in the viewport and migrating that, and it does work, but it doesn’t work very well for anything that isnt a combined mesh and is made up of smaller meshes together.
Does anyone know any way to migrate these assets that i’ve edited the materials of in the viewport into a new project whilst retaining their current materials (and ideally lightmass override settings too, but thats not a huge deal)?
