Skeletal Mesh Reduction Tool Overview

In the past, if you wanted to reduce the rendering cost of your Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) projects Skeletal Meshes you had to create the needed Level Of Detail (LOD) Meshes in your Digital Content Creation (DCC) program of choice and then manually import each one. Or you could use an integrated 3rd party tool like Simplygon to do this for all from within the UE4 Editor. Since both of these methods of creating LOD's are not ideal as they can be very time consuming the Skeletal Mesh Reduction tool was created. The Skeletal Mesh Reduction tool allows you to create LOD for your Skeletal Meshes inside the UE4  Editor.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
