    New package alert! FBX Exporter version 4.1.0-pre.2 is now available. This is a release candidate for the upcoming Unity 2021.2 beta and will graduate to a full release (no -pre) sometime in the 2021.2 beta cycle. Because this is a release candidate, it isn't visible by default in Package Manager for versions of Unity other than 2021.2. See below for installation instructions.

    What's New
    • Added ability to export blendshape animations when the "Animated Skinned Mesh" Export Option is selected.
    What's Changed
    • Updating the minimum required version of the Unity Recorder package to 2.5.5.
    • Updating the minimum required version of the Timeline package to 1.5.2.
    • Updated the FBX SDK bindings to 4.1.0-pre.1.
    Known Issues
    • FBX exporter integration with Probuilder broken with Probuilder 5.0.3. Exporting a Probuilder object may break the original object.
    The full changelog is available here.

    Minimum Requirements

    Unity 2019.4

    To Install FBX Exporter 4.1.0-pre.2, do one of the following:
    • In Unity 2021.2a19 and above, add the FBX Exporter package in Package Manager and select version 4.1.0-pre.2.

    • In Unity 2020.3 and above, click the [+] button at the top left of the Package Manager, select Add package by git URL... and enter com.unity.formats.fbx@4.1.0-pre.2.

      OR

    • In any supported version of Unity, edit Packages/manifest.json and add the following line to the top of the list of dependencies:

      "com.unity.formats.fbx": "4.1.0-pre.2",

      (or update the existing version to 4.1.0-pre.2).
