Trouble retargetting animation
Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me fix my issue in retarggeting issue ? I have followed many youtube videos and the animation always warps my mesh and also makes it huge (see approx size in viewport). I am just using the free anim pack starter on the marketplace. Thanks Ben
I've had a chance now to have some team members look at this in 3DSMax and they see almost the same issues as when the fbx is imported into to Maya. First the scale of the character is extremely high, it should be to scale of the morphed skin in my first image above.
You will definitely need to scale down the character, detach the skin, and re-skin the character because there are skin weight issues and because the character is so large that, when rotating bones in UE4, the bones are not rotating at a 1:1 ratio.
So you can either fix this yourself; There are plenty of free online resources for how to 1. Use proper scaling for UE4 and 2. Skin your character for animation in 3DSMax.
...Or you can ask for support from the creator of the asset or a refund because the original file (if that's the one you have provided) is out of scale and is missing skin weights on the arm.
