Some file formats cannot be directly imported into Unreal Engine using Datasmith, and instead the data must be converted into a file format that Datasmith understands. The plugins available for download on this page will enable your software to export the .udatasmith file format, which can then be imported into Unreal Engine using Datasmith. Many of these plugins are also compatible with Twinmotion.Download the available installer file that matches the Unreal Engine or Twinmotion version you are using, exit your content creation software, and run the installer file to install the exporter plugin.If you are installing these plugins on a computer that will not also have Unreal Engine installed, then you may first need to install some prerequisite dependencies for either 64-bit or 32-bit systems.
So I'm trying to download the free twinmotion to my computer but I can't connect my ID (as shown here, the button is unclickable). I just created my account and got the free student license, does that have something to do with this problem

The following need to be set up for you to get your MetaHuman characters from the Creator web tool to other tools like Unreal Engine and Maya. Quixel Bridge is used to download and export your MetaHumans between these other tools and provides direct access to the source assets and Unreal Engine assets.
Indicates that this MetaHuman has been updated in the MetaHuman Creator Tool since they were last downloaded to your machine. You must update them to see the latest changes locally. To do that, you can either:
You can download and export any MetaHuman Presets or MetaHumans linked to your Epic Games account in Quixel Bridge. Click the MetaHumans filter and select one of the following two options:
Download Settings enable you to configure settings relevant to the MetaHumans you want to download. For example, you can specify the types and formats of textures and models/assets you want to download.
Export Settings enable you to configure settings for sending MetaHumans directly to a supported platform by installing a plugin. For example, having a running instance of Unreal Engine open will copy the MetaHuman game assets and configure needed project settings, plugins, and console variables to load a MetaHuman directly into your project. To use the export option, you must have already downloaded the MetaHuman you want to export.
The MetaHumans filter provides a couple of ways to get started downloading your characters; by hovering a MetaHuman asset tile and clicking on the download icon, or by selecting the MetaHuman asset tile and using the information panel that opens on the right side of the screen.
When hovering the mouse over a MetaHuman asset, the Download button appears in the top-right corner of the tile. When using this option, it will use the default settings if none of the Download Settings have been configured, otherwise it will use what has been previously set. This is important to know in case you've already been using Quixel Bridge to download other 3D assets from the Quixel library, as these settings are globally applied and not all settings are specific to MetaHumans.
Clicking on a MetaHuman asset opens the information panel on the right side of the Bridge interface. It provides access to download and export settings and possibly other relevant information about this asset. This is where you'll configure settings and texture resolution options before downloading them.
MetaHuman asset generation can take a little while to process. It largely depends on the assets being chosen, their texture resolution, internet speeds, and how many are in the Quixel Bridge queue to generate assets. On average for a MetaHuman with 1K textures, it takes about 20-30 minutes to generate and download the assets.
While downloading or updating a MetaHuman, Bridge will display progress as a percentage on their thumbnail. This process consists of two parts: generating your MetaHuman's files and Assets, and downloading them to your machine.
When selected, there is a Textures and Models tab that has some selectable options available for choosing which types of textures you want to include with your downloaded assets, and what type of assets you want to download.
Once download of a MetaHuman is complete, they are also available in the Local filter of Quixel Bridge, along with other assets you have downloaded. From here, you can manage your assets by navigating to where they are stored on your local drive, seeing related content, and using the export options (discussed in the next section of this guide).
In addition to downloading your MetaHuman characters, you can directly export them to running instances of Unreal Engine and Maya and have them automatically imported and instantly available using the Quixel Bridge plugin.
Assuming you've already downloaded a MetaHuman asset, hovering over a MetaHuman asset tile replaces the download button with the Export button in the top-right corner of the tile. When using this option, the default settings are used for the Export Settings unless they have been previously configured.
Clicking on a MetaHuman asset opens the information panel on the right side of the Bridge interface. It provides access to download and export settings and possibly other relevant information about this asset. This is where you'll configure settings and texture resolution options before downloading and choosing to export them.
Only assets which have already been downloaded can be exported. For example, if you've only downloaded the 1K textures but not the 2K or 8K ones, you will need to select them and download them first.
When an export target is set to Unreal Engine or Maya and you click the Export button, if an open instance of either of them is running, the MetaHuman assets you've previously downloaded will be sent directly to that instance. A pop-up message will indicate the status of the export process. The example below shows a successful export to an open and running instance of Unreal Engine.
