[Addon] UE Helper

I am extensively using excellent Blender for Unreal Engine addon to exporting my models. But there is one aspect that I wanted to automate even more - marking/unmarking multiple objects at the same time. So I created this little addon to help with that:

Additionally, it sets paths for import so that Blender’s collection hierarchy is preserved on Unreal side.

You can get this addon here:

It is quite a niche use… but I hope someone will find it useful :slight_smile:


Edit: I’m not new to Python… but this is my first add on for Blender. So if you have any feedback or tips how to improve it - I’ll take it :slight_smile:

Edit2: updated repo path

Updated the addon with possibility of setting rotation around Z axis (so objects face correct forward direction in Unreal)

Moved the panel into Unreal Engine panel added by the ‘master addon’ :slight_smile:

Added also a simple script for exporting to unity based on current selection.

In order to not re-invent the wheel I’m considering to maybe bridge the Unity export to some addon that’s already exist and is working well with Unity… maybe this one: https://github.com/mrven/Blender-Asset-Creation-Toolset/ :thinking:
