    Love this, very easy to use and clean to animate with. The Smart align tool is such a time saver and barley had to adjust anything. The fact you can adjust the bone positions at any point for a non-destructive workflow is worth the money on its own, with the standard blender rigs you lose any animation and bone grouping I noticed when regenerating a rig. Had a couple of support questions and was emailed back same day. It would be good in a future release to have checkbox to generate the UI picker objects or not if not needed for a tidier scene. Also, maybe some constraints for the in-between controls on the lips and brows so they flow together when selecting the end and midpoints.

      Thank Adam, I guess you're right for the picker on/off checkbox. It's definitely on the roadmap. For now, do you know you can delete the picker bones and the "rig_ui" empty and its hierarchy to disable the picker? But it's not possible to restore it easily.

    For me, one of the most irritating things about working with UE4 and Blender is trying to get a custom character to behave as well as the Mannequin. It's fiddly and time consuming and everything is based around it. This addon works great and removes this frustration. Not only that but the creator has been extremely helpful, prompt and approachable. Would rate this 10 stars if I could.

    So easy to use and a really nice result out of the box yet still allows so much customisation/tweaking. Where has this rig been all my life.

    I would like one thing to be changed if at all possible;

    When i edit a shape and apply it, it kicks me out of pose mode to object mode making me click the rig again and then going back into pose mode to mirror the shape to the other side. It's just a little long if you have a lot of shapes you want to edit/mirror. It'd be better if once you edit the shape and hit "apply" then it just puts you back into pose mode with the shape selected so you can click the mirror button right away without the extra steps needed. This would speed up the workflow quite a bit, i think.

    Just an idea. Not sure if it's possible, amazing work either way and you've more than earned a 5 star rating for this masterpiece.

      I agree, I wanted to fix that a while ago but been always busy doing other stuff and kind of forgot about it... Thanks for your feedback and this reminder, will work on it!

    Great add-on! The Unity export process works flawlessly, and the rig is easy to work with. I don't think I can ever go back to using Rigify or rolling my own.

    Speaking of Rigify, it would be nice to have a show/hide panel for the various controls (e.g. show left arm IK, hide auxiliary controls, etc.) like the one used in Rigify. Otherwise I'm very happy with my purchase. Please keep up the good work!

    When learning this addon for Unreal Engine (or any game engine), familiarizing yourself with Blender's animation system and UE's import will greatly help to streamline your animation. Also, Read The Docs - take notes on it, and your problems will be reduced SIGNIFICANTLY.

    With persistence, I am getting a smooth animation pipeline to UE4 with facial animation. The reason why I gave this 5 stars - is because not only do I have a stable workflow now, but the Author Artell keeps this addon updated with bug fixes and new features that makes this addon worth more than advertised.

    Do yourself a favor, get the full version. Read the docs, and have fun. This is such an important addon to have if you want to animate characters within Blender and your game engine of choice.

    Bought specifically for the UE4 export. The addon works flawlessly and the remap function is super useful. Also, the customer support would be worth another five stars. Thanks again.

    Fantastic product overall!
    I could not wrap my head around all the details, but wanted to make sure that I am not forgetting to review this product. Even without that, there is a lot for that price which works very well for the use cases I tried out so far.

    • Artell about 2 years ago

      Very much appreciated, thanks dantus!
