Trying to upload Maya animation


(Dubgeneral) #1

my rig is pretty complex and I'm not sure if I'm selecting the right groups for export. Any help is appreciated.

What you want to export is just the skeleton and the geometry only. Before doing that though you want to bake the animation down. To do this select your root joint the go to select > hierarchy. Finally go to edit > keys > bake simulation. I usually use the default settings. Just make sure your timeslider is only showing the frames you want to bake. Delete everything but your joints and geo and export that. Hope that helps :smile:

I'm not sure which joint is my root joint.

In this case the root is the pelvis. It is the top-most joint of the hierarchy
