Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing the mesh, part of Creating a Stylized Wooden Crate Game Asset.
- In order to see all of the hard work…that we have put in so far on display in the Unreal Engine,…the step we need to take next is that of importing…the FBX mesh for our crate, which thankfully,…is a fairly painless process.…Indeed all we need to do, down in the Content Manager,…is click on the big Import Again button, in order to…bring up the import dialogue.…We will, of course, have to navigate to wherever…our FBX mesh is located, which in my case,…is the Exercise files download.…
And, from the Export folder, select the…Crate_Folder FBX File, which will bring up…Unreal's XBF import options dialogue.…Now for the sake of time, one option that we are going to…make use of here is Auto Generate Collision,…which typically speaking, is not something that I would…necessarily recommend.…Seeing as we haven't in any way discussed the subject…of Collision meshes for games up to this point, however,…it would seem wise to simply go ahead and make use of this…automated feature in Unreal for now.…
Because we took the time right at the start of the course…
