I’m trying to retarget some animations I purchased from the Marketplace.
The skeleton that came with the purchased animations is in A-pose and the skeleton that I want to retarget to is also in A-pose.
The problem is that A-poses between models are not exactly the same. What I’m finding is that the small differences affect the animation quality greatly. Especially the fingers. The purchased asset has very relaxed fingers my mesh has very straight fingers. I’m struggling to make the retargeted animation look right when the animation forms a fist.
Unity gets around this problem by forcing each skeleton to exactly the same pose (T-pose) when it configures it for animation. Is there a similar option in Unreal. If not, is there an easier way to do this? It feels like I’m doing this the hard way.
