Short description of error
There is a problem with exported FBX files that contain many objects.
They cannot be reimported in the UE4 cause the "." in the name of some objects causes that UE4 with own name notation is unable to reimport such object.
There is very simple way to fix it.
before this line:
fbx_data_object_elements(objects, ob_obj, scene_data)
should be this conversion:
ob_obj.name = ob_obj.name.replace(".","_") #replace dots in object names with underscores
All has been described here:
Ue4 forum link
It would be nice to have this fixed permanently, because Blender is the only one modeller that uses dots in automatic name extensions
na causes problems at UE4 reimport. Cause at every Blender upgrade this needs to be fixed manually.
