Hi, I am trying to retarget character A to the other character B, which is linked to motion capture device, and I cannot make it work for some reason. I will very appreciate if you could help me out.
I am using Vicon for motion capture and my Unreal Engine version is 4.27.2. The plugin for Unreal Engine to link the motion is “Vicon DataStream LiveLink 1.5.1”, but I guess it might not because specific problem for those systems, but my inadequate understanding for retargetting.
From Vicon software, Shogun, with using plugin “Vicon DataStream LiveLink”, I could have linked and moved characters in Unreal Engine.
Then after, I wish to move other character in Unreal Engine, let’s say character B, by retargetting to the character A, which is linked to Vicon software.
I followed the same way of this document,
As the result, I cannot move the character B, when I use the “UE4_Mannequin_Skeleton” or other random FBX humanoids as the character B.
But oddly enough, when I use a character which is provided from Vicon software as character B, it worked well.
(of course, in this case character A and B are not same data)
In the mean time, I also had tried to mess out the setting of “Set up Rig”, but somehow the characters A and B have moved synchronously, even though the rig setting was incorrect.
If someone could tell me why this happens, it helps me a lot.
Also I hope to have reference documents or tips for retargetting character to another animated character witch links to motion capture, I will very appreciate it.
