UE5 Retargeting - No Animation Assets in Retargeting Asset Browser

Hello! I am currently trying to create an Animation Retarget in Unreal Engine 5. I have already created my IK-rigs for all of my characters, and should be ready for retargeting! There is just one issue - I can’t access any of my animations from the Animation Retargeting Editor!

I have already verified that I have reset all filters within the content browser (Though if anyone would like to correct me, feel free to prove me wrong! I would love to be wrong for the sake of a problem solved.)
I have already checked the “asset” tab to look for asset import options. “Find in Content Browser” (Ctrl + B shortcut) looked promising, but would not respond when clicked, or when called via “Ctrl + B”.
I have already attempted to drag & drop assets into the Retargeting Asset Browser.
I have already attempted Copying & Pasting my animation files into the same location as my Retargeting file.

What else do you recommend that I do? Is there anyone that has experienced this issue? I am willing to provide my file for testing if requested. Thank you!!!Hello!

I believe you have to select the animations that you want to retarget in the content browser and right click and select retarget anim assets> duplicate anim assets and retarget

@Humanasset This would work - however, the trouble is, I cannot reach the new UE5 “Animation Retargeting Editor” from this window!

Is there a way to reach the retargeting editor from the “Duplicate and Retarget Animation Assets” pop-up?

Well, sorry to say I’m still using 4.26.2 so I’m not too sure…
