Why is there no material for my Skeletal Mesh?

in the skel mesh editor there is no material part in the left hand LOD0 slide, also setting the material in blueprint doesnt do anything, i noticed that old skel meshes that were carried over from lesser versions have a material and can be set in BP.


You’ll want to make sure that you’ve applied a default material to your mesh before exporting it from your modeling software.

Thank you!
