    I'm wondering how to deal with an object that's somehow had its hierarchy stripped but still has all of the same animation clips working from import. Is there some way to bake the animation and be able to fix the hierarchy to be able to get rigs?

    Crazy, right? :) But you can use any DCC tool, that was only my choice.


    I'm a bit confused by this, what do you mean? How did it happen? Maybe there's a way to fix it in the first place.

    In any case, the hierarchy of bones should be all under one object that has an Animator component.

    Hi,

    The documentation says the 2020.1 has animation rigging, when i open the Package Manager, it doesn't exist, there is not even the button to enable preview packages.

    click Advanced project settings
    Enable preview packages checkbox

    Thanks sinjinn for coming to the rescue!
    Yes, until Animation Rigging becomes a verified package, you'll find it under Preview packages. So in 2020.1 you'll need to enable them in the Project Settings as detailed above.

    Hi cirocontinisio, just curious if there's a roadmap or something like this to get an idea when this might be a 'verified package'? It all looks promising, both the examples I've seen and what I've been able to play with... therefore interested to know what the plans are!

    Thanks

    I discovered this tool yesterday and I have to say that this is quite amazing! Thank you so much for making this available!

    One question: I noticed that there's a small cpu cost even if all your weights are 0 or if the rigs are ticked off from the Rig Builder component. This cost disappears when you tick off the Rig Builder component, and is smaller if you have less contraints added. While the performance of this tool is drastically better than another IK asset that I tested before, I was wondering if it's possible to make only the active constraints use cpu resources.

    And thanks again!

    This is a great video. Are there any plans for follow up tutorials? I especially would like to get started on using Bolt and Animation rigging. I think it would be very useful for artists.

    I'm trying to follow along, and am stuck getting started. I create a new 3D project in Unity 2020.1, and import the Adventure Sample Game. Then I open the Market Demo scene, which is where you start the tutorial. But there are a lot of errors at this point. I'd love to follow along with the video, is there a more current starting project to use?

    Thanks, the new Animation Rigging looks very exciting.

    @cirocontinisio I have a problem with the workflow of the multi-parent constraint. The constrained object should always be a child to the gameobject object with the animator component (otherwise it produces an error) which doesn't make sense since this constraint would mainly be used to interact with world objects which aren't necessarily children to the player's game object. Is there a work around to that ?
