I wanted to port a simple test project from 4.2.09 to UE.
This is because newer versions of Spine have physics.
It would be nice if UE was up to date as well, but it doesn't really matter right now.
I expected the Spine data asset and Spine atlas asset to be created in UE by dragging and dropping, or by the import button.
- The .json exported in 4.2.09 could not be imported in UE.
- I found that the tutorial video using the file is a .skel, not a .json.
- Changed Spine version to 4.1.24.
- imported successfully.
- I went back to 4.2.09, renamed the extension to .skel and tried to export it, but it still failed to import.
The content of the project consists of two simple IK bones, one IK target bone, and a ball hanging from the end of the IK.
In both 4.1.24 and 4.2.09, there was no physics.
