    You don't even know what's in a MAT file.

      I know , MAT file is material , usually ues to static mesh or Skeletial mesh surface , but , XXX.mat , how can I import to UDK ? maybe it is 3DMax file , but I use 3DMAX Material editor / get material / libarary / open -> to open the XXX.mat file , not yet to open .mat , so I want to say what software or way to open XXX.mat file ?

        The only thing I see described as a ".mat" file is a MATLAB file, which has absolutely nothing to do with Unreal in any way.

          The supported formats are listed when you try to import. You cannot add support for additional formats to UDK. Convert them externally to a format UDK recognizes and use that.

            You can't use .mat material files in UDK--when you export an OBJ file it'll create a .mat file so when you import the OBJ file into 3ds Max or other programs it'll read the .mat file and create the material--but UDK doesn't support the import of materials

                you're .mat file needs to be in the same place as your .obj file, then you just import the .obj and make sure to import materials as well


                Just be aware that materials rarely are able to convert between programs and you might not actually get anything out of it
