    Must have addon if you plan on using UE4 Mannequin animations with your custom models. Many thanks to Artell for continue working on such a great product.

    This addon is a life and time saver! For those who want to skip the pain of rigging, you got the tool right here! Totally recommended!
    The support is top notch too!

    Great addon !!


    I have a backgroung in 3D animation (3 years at Ubisoft). I work with 3dsmax Biped, try Maya Rigs and Human IK (Maya, Motion Builder).

    I have try many custom rig in Maya and 3ds and I can say your rig and rigging settup is BreathTaking ! (yes, Keanu Reaves meme).

    It took me literaly 3 min to setup a simple biped character with skinning... Impressive !

    Fk/Ik switch is really apreciated since Rigify and BlenRig don't have this feature...
    You need to go 100% IK with a slider then snap FK to IK... What a pain, to many steps... Coming from Biped and Human IK... Rigify and Blenrig are not adapt for game animation

    Just one thing... Do you think it would be possible to integrate FK and IK together so that we don't have to switch (like the Biped in 3ds max).

    It works like that : Select hand. Chain is IK, select arm or forearm, chain is FK. No need to switch ! Then for the interpolation, you can turn your chain IK or FK, but for the control part I think it should be seamless

      You are breath taking!
      Seamless IK-FK switch is definitely the way to go. Not sure yet how to implement it and when, but it's definitely something I want to work on at some point.

    This solved all my issues with exporting skinned meshes to unreal, I was able to share the ue4 mannequin skeleton and use his animations without even having to retarget. I struggled a lot with this process before finding this addon (blender and unreal really don't play well together).

    A really good and professional product, the Artell boys have really done a good job. This is and remains one of the best products available on blendermarket

    Do you wanna do something for UE4? Well, this thing will do your life easier, I haven't encountered nearly any problem just two or three times in 2.8 with the smart rigging, but a simple reinstall always fix it, and when I needed support the response was very quick, though I just needed it once.

    This addon seems to work for everyone but me. I've followed the FAQ a million times over, and have used this on both versions of blender. I've used a million different models and the mesh simply will not bind. I've reached out the Artell, and he just sent me the FAQ link again and told me to review it. Awful and unprofessional support.

    • Artell 3 months ago

      Not true. I've expressively mentioned in the message to send the blend file if the FAQ did not help. I cannot fix a problem I can't reproduce locally.

    Decent rig. Awfull support.

    • Artell 3 months ago

      Decent rig, awful support... not sure how to understand it. Egor i've replied to many messages from you. I simply hadn't found time yet to reply your last ones, because I was on vacations and I'm in charge of support messages coming from many users. I prioritize blocking issues, bugs, these must be addressed as soon as possible when reported by users. It takes time to reply to all. The latest, long messages from you were about skinning advices, and more general rigging knowledge in Blender: I was going to kindly reply to it, but i'm not required to give support for this anyway.

    The addons is not accepted by Blender 2.8 is giving me an error. It cost me hours of work... Trying re-starting, erasing and restoring :( etc. Are you going to fix it?

    • Artell 3 months ago

      I'd guess if it can't be installed in Blender 2.8 you probably downloaded and installed the wrong addon version.
      However if the problem is elsewhere please see the Bug Report page for support:
