In the past I have FBX exported out with materials but in 7.3 it is just giving roughness and metallic, any thoughts?

It should export all texture maps, not just Roughness and Metallic.

I tried this and got the same result, so what you need to do is uncheck "Embed Textures". This will save out all texture maps separately.

Even with embedd textures On the textures are exported. They are included in the FBX though. Unity or UE4 can extract  them though.
Its a bit inconvenient...why store the textures at different locations.

@k.rehimi: you are correct; I assumed that Tony wanted the textures separate for some reason.

The metallic and roughness are always exported into a separate folder because the FBX file does not support them. Having them in an external folder allows you to then load them in your other software.
