    How do I get a USD skinned character to animate in Unity?

    1. As a test, I have a Miximo character exported as USD from Maya.
    2. In USD Stage, I verified the animation and skin are working on the character.
    3. In Unity 2020, I have imported a USD character
    a. USD package 3.0.0 preview is installed
    b. In the Inspector, skinning is on.
    c. In the Inspector, Payload Policy is set to Load All
    d. In the Inspector, I see an "Animator" component? Is there supposed to be a USD Controller and Avatar?
    4. I have the USD "Control Track" loaded in Timeline.

    How do I get a USD skinned character to animate in Unity?
    a. Is there supposed to be a Controller and Avatar in the USD somewhere to plug into the Animator?
    b. Or, do I something else in the Timeline?
