    Failed to import textures. Invalid File name

    I downloaded a package of textures from an author, and when I go to import them I get the following message from UDK:

    "Import failed for metalTextures.Metal_Textures 01: Name containts an invalid character : [ ]"

    I can't understand why the [ ] is in there though, as I haven't typed anything in that looks remotely close to that.

    Have any of you run into this issue before?

    not sure but remove any spaces from the file name and try again
    or any odd characters

    edit: yea the sapce in "metalTextures.Metal_Textures[space]01"


      I think that may have been it. I changed the file name to MetalTextures01

      However, when I go to import it now, it just reads "Import Failed."

      Ahhhhhh . I'll figure it out sooner or later.


        what are the dimensions of the image? they would need to be a powers of 2 eg 128x128, 256x256, 512x512, 1024x1024, 2048x2048 etc...


          I got it!

          I was clicking on the "import" icon in the bottom left corner of the content browser, when I should have been selecting the image of the folder next to it instead. After trying that I was able to successfully get it in. Thank you guys.
