$begingroup$ Unreal have no problem with.obj files when I export them with blender 2.78b but you right. I dont want to export.fbx files because they are almost x9 times bigger then.obj files. I dont want to export.fbx files because they are almost x9 times bigger then.obj files.

  1. Working on object packs for Unreal Engine 4 can be tedious with Blender. That's why I created the Add-on: 'Blender for UnrealEngine'. It simplifies the method of exporting from Blender to Unreal Engine 4 by allowing you to export all the assets of a scene at the same time.
  2. Copy location, rotation, and scale of the selected objects from Blender to the clipboard and easily paste them into Unreal Engine. This Blender addon allows you to copy the location/rotation/scale of all selected meshes in the scene to the clipboard and simply paste them.

Epic Games has released Send to Unreal and UE to Rigify, its plugins for transferring rigged and animated characters between Blender and Unreal Engine.

The tools, which have been in development for several months – the video above is from a preview livestream this February – are intended to streamline game development workflow in Blender.

Transfer character animations between Blender and UE4 in one click – if your scene scale is right
The add-ons provide a one-click transfer workflow, automatically converting Blender characters for use with UE4’s default Mannequin, and UE4 rigs for use with Blender’s Rigify auto-rigging add-on.

However, both currently have the same limitation as Blender’s standard FBX exporter: that assets must be created using a Blender Unit Scale of 0.01 in order for bone scaling to work correctly in UE4.

That can cause workflow issues within Blender, discussed in more detail in this forum post.

As an alternative, many games artists rely on third-party add-on Mr Mannequins Tools, which is available on a pay-what-you-want basis, and which automates the scale conversion.

In a Reddit thread, Mr Mannequins Tools author Jim Kroovy commented that he will still continue to develop the plugin, but that he “want[s] Send to Unreal to be THE Blender to UE4 export add-on”.

Availability and system requirements
Send to Unreal and Unreal to Rigify are available under the Unreal Engine EULA. Both are free to download. The plugins are compatible with Blender 2.83+ and Unreal Engine 4.25+.

I wouldn't recommend that method. But if you want to you can convert the Curves to a mesh by selecting it and push ALT+C the select MESH FROM CURVE. But your poly and vert counts may go through the roof if your curves are too complex and is not optimal at all. You could always build a low poly afterwards and just bake a normalmap to get the same detail. If you are particularly going for that look.

I recommend watching the video below. The guy uses Maya but the method for creating the hair should be the same. Use polygons and a texture with a alpha layer and just stack them over one another.
