Animating the UE4 Mannequin

I’ve tried to do this so many times and have never been able to get it to work. It could be that my version of Maya is whack, or it could be that I’m just doing it wrong.

I have the ART kit set up in Maya 2013. Everything is functional except for when i try to “add” the mannequin for animation. It just gives me an error and doesn’t do anything. Says no characters found in scene. If i create my own rig/skeleton with ART everything works fine though. Am I missing a step here? I see tons of animation packs on the marketplace for the mannequin. Are they not actually animating with the mannequin and just simply retargeting after they’re finished?
