Retargeting custom bones

I have a skeleton set up with some custom bones (a reference sync bone used to pair animations when grappling) and I want to retarget them to another skeleton using the Retargeting Tool. I am retargeting the main skeleton fine, but I don’t know how to add custom bones. There are advanced bones for additional bones, but nothing allowing me to specify my own ones.

Has anyone done this? Is this even possible? I’m so close to getting the results I need I really hope that I can get this final step because without it it’s a bit of a dealbreaker and I’ll have to figure out a different way to achieve what I need (ie without retargeting).

Thanks in advance.

To do this, you should create your own rig and retarget using the rig data.

This isn’t recommended for the items that are in Market Place, but if you have your own system, you can just create your own rig from Skeleton, and other skeletons can retarget using the rig. You should be able to use “Retarget Manager” to choose the rig you created.



Thanks a lot Lina. I was thinking this might be my best bet but didn’t look too much into it. I couldn’t find how to create my own rig at the time so I’ll go digging around for that.

Thanks again.
