It is not an automatic process. If you are using a different skeleton than Epic’s default skeleton, you will need to assign the bones one by one following the instructions here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Animation/RetargetingDifferentSkeletons/index.html
An easier approach might be to export Epic’s skeleton from the game, import it into your 3D graphics program, then skin your model and paint skin weights to that rig.
im not the one who rigged my model oringaly either i am new to this and confussed and that link is for 4.5 release i am using 4.8 there different
It works my friend. I checked over my lunch break. Just take your time and read the tutorials and watch Youtube lessons. I recommend Tesla Dev videos and all others.
Did you get the re-targeting working?
