From your screenshot it looks like you've selected the parent Node Dummy. Please expand the hierarchy and select mesh node.

Hi @biglong,

We moved all object-specific parameters to the main tab. The video shows old UI. According to your screenshot this cube has no animations and was imported as MeshStatic. If you're sure it has animation try to restore default import settings.

And the animation is inside the fbx, try double click on the .fbx file

if you have an animation inside, just create a skinned mesh and use your mesh

if you don't have animation in the fbx file you probably don't exported the animation

Double click on the .fbx file?I can't understand yet.Maybe i can use the export plugin for maya export and unigine import.I will get a maya2012 later.

@biglong, only skinned (bone-based) animation is supported at the moment. All other types will be ignored at the import stage.

We're considering extending of the animation support in the future.

Thanks.

Maybe this trick will help here.

I used that 10 years ago in a different Engine. Animation as skinned object is not necessarily a limitation ;).

You could try the following:

Instead of animating your actual object, you animate a bone which is skinned to a simple object (I guess one skinned vertex could be enough), I used just a box.

This functions as a dummy object  in your cct. (maya?) 

The bone can have all the transforms you need (although I never did try scaling). 

Export the animation and your skinned dummy (box).

In Unigine, you can expose the skinned bones and access it via the World Transform Bone. 

Create this via:

Create>Mesh>Skinned Bone

Set this bone as a child of you skinned mesh and select the matching bone of the skinned mesh (parent).

Now you can attach your actual object (static mesh) which you wanted to be animated.

 

I used this method for complex simulated animations of a Truck with a trailer and hirachrical bones.

It does not really influence you workflow as you can animated any object in cct.

Afterwards attach a bone, skin it and export the animations. Maybe, depending on your scene and export options you might bake the animations in maya onto the actual bone (but I guess you know how to do this in Maya, not my special field .. ;).

I did that from 3dsMax. But this Method should be universal, as it does not utilize any special cct features, so it should be possible from out any content creation tool.

Let me know if that helps.

 

Best.w.
