Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I am trying to remember this off the top of my head so bare with me.

  1. right click the root bone and recursively set to transaction retargeting Skeleton

  2. now change root to animation

  3. pelvis (or the equivalent) should be animation scaled

  4. everything else should be left skeleton unless they are a root or IK bone.

This is from a guide but I cannot find it right now but my understanding is

  • If it should only rotate = bone

  • if it should rotate and translate = animation

  • if it should rotate translate and scale = animation scaled

Hope this helps

This is the correct answer, and helped solve my issues with extra scaling info in the animation that was messing up the character mesh, as well as make the wrists and general bone structure better in the retargeted animation.
