    I'm noticing some problems exporting static mesh assets and textures from blender: I'l love to point majorly on the problem, but I see that some export is not working on materials (I cannot figure the problem, because is really random on certain types of assets).
    Where I can investigate, there's some procedure to make sure materials and textures are exported (forcing, I mean), like exporting on blender FBX (copy, embed).

    There are also a couple of MaxScripts created for advanced material effects, namely PivotPainter and the Vertex Animation Tool which are exceptionally useful (to the point where its almost a necessity in my opinion) for getting highly dynamic worlds with good performance. As I recall from previous demos, Fortnite is using both of these. I hope you'll consider porting these to Blender and integrating them with your addon.
    Exactly. This is is what we need most. It is the only way to have animated meshes as particles in Niagara. No other way can be used. People with 3dsMax can do it, bur with Blender not.
    Currently there is one man in the community that has made an addon, but I would prefer to rely in something supported by Epic Games when it comes to mantain the addon over newest Blender/Unreal versions.

    Is there a way to import children objects combined as one model?

    I have to apply all my modifiers and join the objects in Blender, which is a pretty terrible and destructive workflow.

    I have got the AVG Anti-Virus. And actually, I checked that, disabled my Antivirus, and here we go, it works!

    So the next question would be, which path should be stored in the "allow"-list of the antivirus programm? I have tried several ones but it doesn´t seem to work?

    greets

    Sadly, I couldn´t make it work...

    I have made all required steps for setting both Blender and UE4 up (enable python scripts etc), but when I send an object from Blender to Unreal, it give me this error (see pictures

    This addon is awesome.

    +1 request for exporting custom collision meshes

    First off, I'd like to thank the developers who worked on this addon. The exporting process is buttery smooth, and it's great to see Epic supporting open source software!

    I think there's one main obstacle preventing this addon from being used in a production environment though. As far as I know, the only way to change the export path is via the settings in the addon. This is pretty cumbersome, especially when working on projects with hundreds of assets with different file paths for each type (props, architecture, etc.).

    It would be great if the addon respected the collection hierarchy present in the blender file, and used that during the export process. This way, the user wouldn't have to worry about export paths at all! Everything would be organized in the blend file, and would have 1:1 parity with the folder structure in unreal.

    I took some screenshots to explain this visually. Curious to hear other people's thoughts!

    2 things I want:

    1. Smoothing information to be transferred from Blender to UE4 correctly through this addon
    2. Detect the type of normal map used DirectX or BC5 in the project setting, and convert the normal maps accordingly while exporting (I think all it needs is invert)

    I highly recommend auto-rig pro for Blender skinned mesh - this saves a ton of time in setting up a UE4 compatible skeleton and the export is perfect for the mannequin target. The author is really responsive and helpful. Not sure why Epic would fail to provide a tool to facilitate one of the hardest workflows in Blender, but I guess its good for the publishers of ARP and UEify.

    And before people start posting the usual messages about getting a 404 from the url, its the usual situation, there is nothing wrong with the link, you need to have your github account setup with Epic properly so you can see these private repositories.
