    Works perfectly for my simple FBX animation and rigs from Maya to Blender. This app single handedly saved my butt! :D the regular Blender FBX importer scrambles up my maya rigs so badly that they are unrecognizable and unusable. So imagine my shock when right out of the box this works and I get perfect bound skeletons on the blender side! Note, that complex rigs from maya with expressions and advanced drivers should not be able to translate into FBX properly, but I had already planned ahead and kept my maya rig very simple with FK only joints, to anticipate a pipeline baking animation into blender for final FX and rendering. But after I tried it, I saw that it also takes the maya blendshapes across, saving me a ton of time! I can now feasably animate these creature rigs on the blender side as well. This plug-in is amazing, thank you!

    Wow - I wasted the better part of a day trying to get animation files into blender from Maya. The default blender fbx import was a total mess, so I had to try this add on. I only wish I did sooner, and would have done so, if not for the recent bad reviews. No idea what they are smoking - as I am very happy to report the Maya FBX imported perfectly, without error. Even better than how it looked in modo. I am on a Mac M1 , Blender 3.3 and the addon installed with zero problems. Thank you so much - best of luck!

    It imported some tracking information and camera perfectly to my scene. bought it after spending a lot of time with the basic importer that could never get it right.

    I bought this plugin with high hopes to help me with working with Fbx files from unity into blender and back to unity. It was recommended to me by a well known unity model and animation asset maker in the unity asset store. Below is a description of the problem. Btw ( i contacted the person that recommended me to buy this plugin and he also ran into the same problem). I contacted the maker of this plugin but no answer so far. Please at least let us know what the issue is and if it can be fixed.

    I imported a perfectly rigged fbx model from unity into blender with betterfbx to add additional blend shapes to use in my game. I tried three different ways to get the model back into unity. Normal fbx export, betterfbx, as a blender file. The model comes into the unity looking normal, but when I apply animations to the model, the entire mesh collapses into a mess.
    I then tested with normal blender fbx import and normal fbx export without betterfbx and it worked perfectly when brought back into unity and the animations.

      Please disable 'Automatic Bone Orientation' if you want to re-use the original animations.

    It doesn't work. No difference in import between the fbx importer included in blender

    Exactly what I needed! Working with several teams that use different 3D authoring software, it's been always a headache to import FBXs into Blender seamlessly. Haven't used it for complex scenes, but for rigged game assets it's been working like a charm.

    I have no idea what everyone's talking about. It is not importing any of my fbx files. At least standard blender fbx import hangs but eventually imports. this hangs and then eventually unhangs with no import!

      Hi Annis, this add-on works well with most FBX files, but might have bug with some FBX files, if you encountered issues, please contact me, or you can simply request a refund, no problem.

    I had an FBX model, created with an older tool, that seemed to defy every method I tried to get it loaded into Blender. And then I stumbled upon this add-on and it worked like a charm, first time! Such a good feeling.
