    1000$ for one character? that's a lot of money.

    Can we deliver more than 1 character of just 1?

    Can it be just any character? Or do I have to use the mixamo auto-rig?

    I'm about to finish a character here, but I rigged it using biped in 3dsmax! Can it enter the compo?

    Actually I'm only doing scripts for it in unity now! The Fbx file is already done!

    TBH is the character from my avatar, lol

    any character is fine, does not need to be auto-rigged! Biped is fine, even with out a skeleton is fine too!

    This looks very interesting. But I do have a question, does the author retain all rights to their model? Or does the model become the exclusive property of Mixamo? Can the author use their model in other projects (or even sell it if they wish)?

    Little suggestion: Mixamo you really need your own forum. How about creating a forum on your site where people can offer feedback and share information with one another? Might be nice if we could post images of our work to show off to others as well ;)

    Thanks muchly.

    Does character have to be rigged or is it enough to send only mesh+textures?

    Cubikat: The model is 100% your thought we will be taking some renders of it. You can sell it, use it in a game anything, it is yours! If you want to show off your work please do, you can add some pictures and post them here!

    janpec: No rig needed, mesh and textures is all that is required!

    I forgot to ask, can Mixamo auto-rig character models that are a non standard size? A dwarf for example?

    And can the auto-rigger cope with a character wearing high heels? (So far, I've only used character models that have their feet flat on the ground).

    Cheers.

    We can auto-rig nearly any humanoid, goblin, troll, human, dwarf, gnome, high heals, flat footed.

    It wouldn't be auto-rigging if it only worked on very specific human types :D

    Hmm look like your autorig unable to rig tail. In your site you have animal animation...
    Do It support tail that I may missed out?

    Animals are completely different from humanoids with tails. The auto-rigger does not do tails at this time. Short stubby tails are okay.

    Noooooooooooo I missed the event! I didn't see this! I even went to your site a couple days ago when I was trying to find a quick way to rig my characters and I didn't see the contest :( I guess my mushroom monster would have to be rigged by me manually, so that it can spread happy hallucinations to children around the world :(
