    Yes! This would be extremely useful. I use blender frequently, and i can imagine there are plenty of Indies who can't afford an Autodesk seat out there who would want this too.

      There is some activity to create this exporter by someone other than us. Stay tuned.

        kenpimentel I was just about to add my vote for blender support. Thank you for the info! Please give us more when you know. I couldn't locate the third-party exporter you're talking about.

          I will ask him to post on this thread when he has something you can test with.

            Wow when I saw this thread I was preparing to be disappointed but I'm glad I was wrong. Can't wait to test Blender exporter.

                The developer is delayed on working on this, he hasn't given me an ETA as to when it will be available. We've provided him with the Datasmith APIs, so we're hoping we'll see something soon. He's done some experiments already.

                    Does this mean that Blender integration will require Datasmith and Unreal Studio? With its future subscription fees, that won't be good news for small, independent developers.

                      Why not worry about that IF we ever charge for it?

                            The way I see it, that chart actually shows the exact opposite. That for those mentioned packages, the intention is for data exchange to not go through Datasmith. That being said, I have very high hopes for GLTF. It's a great format which once finished should allow you to transfer data between UE4 and DCC packages, including Blender, very efficiently. Preserving PBR materials and such.

                              You are correct. What you say is accurate for the current timeframe, and Wincent82...thank you for pointing out that the graphic is inaccurate. The data flow for these formats should not be seen flowing through the Datasmith plugin, but directly into the Unreal Engine instead. We'll look into fixing the graphic.

                              That said, we do intend eventually to support additional software like these via the Datasmith importer.

                                Thanks for reply. Ofcourse, I would also love to see Datasmith for Blender to UE4 in action if this are the forecasts, I'm looking forward
