    Default Need help with UV mapping from Blender to UDK

    I'm trying to learn how to import a mesh from Blender to UDK. I tried to import a simple cube but, in the scene, there are shadow triangles that I don't think should be there. The shadows are not baked in and remain in the general location even as I rotate the cube. This is after I rebuild all. What is causing those shadows?

    Also, when I view the UV channels in Unreal's static mesh editor, the texturemap and lightmap don't match what I created in Blender (there's a line criss-crossing).

    I'm using Blender 2.6.2, ASE Export script 1.41, and UDK March 2012. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Picture of the texture UV map in Blender and in UDK. The mapping is the same for the lightmap which also has the criss-cross problem.

    It's smoothing. UDK smooths any connected faces to save performance. You'll need to either make each face a subobject, use "mark sharp" edges and the edge split modifier, or chamfer/bevel it. Alternatively could use a normal map but probably way overkill for a box.

    Thanks BmB23 and geodav. I'll look into smoothing.
