Importing FBX models
« on: August 06, 2020, 04:12:46 am »


I was checking this post from the Thunderhead website:

They use the model of a T-Rex and it is huge. When I download the same file and imprt it to use it in a profile, I get a tiny version, does anyone know why that happens? I have tried with multiple fbx models and some (usually the ones that represent a person) are displayed with a normal size but others are very small.

My guess is that it has something to do with the scale of the model and the scale selected on import.  I used the unit 'hm' and the T-Rex came in at a reasonable size.
