I have the following problem and hope that someone here can help me. I have retargeted the ThirdPersonCharacter (Manny) to my Metahuman and the following problem always happens:
The legs of the metahuman do not move and just slide across the ground.
Same issue here. Tried completely retargeting using IK rig and IK Retarget but it’s still not helping (Tried completely doing bone by bone too) still same issue. as soon as i change the skeleton - it all works. it is just the legs and feet that do not want to cooperate.
This happened in my project when I tried to use the old manequin animations on the new one… And it seems to be some problem with the IK thingy… Try deactivating the control rig node on the animation blueprint and see if it works. Like this:
The issue with feet sticking to the ground usually has the reason that you did not retarget the animations for the IK bones e.g. ik_foot_l, ik_foot_root… . If you retarget make sure that those move as well, and setup ik retarget chains for those bones:
Thank you so much, the last part worked for me. This is what I did, after retargeting with IK I opened the newly created Animation Blueprint->control rig and changed the root in “Full body IK” from “pelvis” to “Animation root”.
That fixed the leg issue for me and its working beautifully now.
