Maya Animation Template?

Hello all,

I’m new here on the forums and UE4. I’m hoping someone can help me figure out a problem.
For our game, I am in charge of animation. I would like to get started right away in creating character animations, but our modelers haven’t created any. Is there any way for me to grab a character/rig template online, create animations on that, save them as a template, then apply them on our created character in UE4? I’ve used Maya before, but not extensively so I’m not sure if this is possible, or if it is how to go about it. Thanks for helping!


Take a look at the maya animation tool from epic games


Cool! Just to clarify, exporting the fbx animation allows me to import it to any character, or just one with the same rig?

When all the chars have the same rigg, then the animations will work for all of them :slight_smile:
