Retargeted animations do not animate


I wanted to retarget some Mixamo animations to the UE4 skeletons, but the retargeted animations do not make the mannequin move except for some strange head movements. I’m not sure what I did wrong since my retargeting manager seems to makes sense after I compared it to several tutorials found on youtube.

I wasn’t able to upload the images so I had to provide a link to them instead.

Here’s what I did:

  • Downloaded sword and shield package and the xbot character from Mixamo
  • Imported the animations while having “convert scene unit” selected.
  • Retargeted the Mixamo skeleton to the Mannequin. Here is a list of my retargeting: The IK are set to none
  • retargeted all the animations

This is the result when I view the animation:

There isn’t any movement in the body except for some stange head movements.
I’m still prety new to animation in Unreal so I have been unable to figure out what I did wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
