FBX Import Scale


Hi … I am trying to import a FBX model. It was modelled in 3DSMax and in meters.

In the Import 3D pop up box, and on the Scale tab - what settings do I need for it be scaled correctly? I have used a zoom factor of 0.1 and it kinda looks OK … but is this correct?

My project MUST be done to a correct scale or it is a worthless exercise.

Any help or pointers would be appreciated.



Hi Andy,

When importing a 3D model into Studio, it scales the model into a 2x2x2 bounding box, which is the value displayed in the scale tab.

The model’s size should be controlled by the unit settings of the modeling tool. Studio doesn’t do the conversion, it only takes what has already been assigned. For example, if a box has a size of 1x1x1, and the modeling tool defines 1 unit = 1 meter or 1 cm, then Studio will always regard it as a 1x1x1 box and during the importing process, it will apply a 200% scale to it.

Hope this helps and let me know if you would like me to clarify this.
