Unreal Engine Datasmith Scripts, VRED

Hi guys, working for an OEM car manufcaturer and we’re testing some unreal engine workflows. Dabbling into totaly new territories here.

In VRED we have our materials already setup, however on import they don’t carry over. File names etc are all there but can’t seem to find a way to get our VRED materials to directly work with UE4. We have created our own materials that are the same as the VRED ones but work in Unreal Engine.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any scripts that could replace the VRED materials with our UE4 materials. Upon import I’d like those materials to be replaced seamlessly or with a press of a button or something. any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated, or anyone who would know a better way that is welcome too.

Thanks, Humza
