FIXED: Check my 3th Post or just search for Solution on this site.


Hey Guys,
since i started with Iclone7 and CC i have this issue with MorphTargets. I want to import my finished Character + Animations into UE4 from IClone after i'm done with Animation.
No it gets a bit complex, but there 4 possible.
What i do:
1. Import from CC3 directly into UE4
2. Import from CC3 with import and export from Maya in between, into UE4.
3. Import from IClone7 directly into UE4
4. Import from IClone7, with import and export from Maya in between, into UE4.

End Result:
1. Everything is allright. All Morphs inside.
2. No Morphs anymore (only 1 left)
3. Everythign is allright expect of wrong root bone name. (Delete unused morph, works fine)
4. No Morphs anymore. (only 1 left)

After importing into Maya, i can see all Blendshapes working fine. Doesn't matter if from Iclone or from CC3

Import and Export Settings Maya and Unreal:

Export Settings Maya: Bake Animation Off, FBX Version (i tried 2015, 2016/2017, 2018) UP Axis (Z. Also tried Y, just in case)

Export Settings Maya: Bake Animation Off


Maybe "on " helps , 
 I use Unity but  for import all Blendshape it is need a Animation where all Morphs are one Keyframe on the timeline 
When I import my FBX with this animation Unity regonized this all a Blendshape  and listed it in the inspector 
I think Unreal works in the simliar way ?

Reallusion Team found a Solution. It's simple and effective.
Solution: 
Just rename _ncl1_7 and _ncl1_8 to something else. I tried test_1 and test_2 and it worked!!!!.

The main problem is the first _ from _ncl1_. If you just rename it to "ncl1_" it works Smile

That also allow's me to fix this problem: https://forum.reallusion.com/394209/IClone7-Unreal-Export-Root-Bone-Name
Now i can also rename the Root-Bone to simple "root" and import it into ue4. FINALLY Smile
