invalid avatar rig configuration

Did you rig your avatar in Mixamo? I see you had it open but seems like something went bad. Did u change Rig to humanoid in unity?

Meshes make up a large part of your 3D worlds. Unity supports triangulated or Quadrangulated polygon meshes. Nurbs, Nurms, Subdiv surfaces must be converted to polygons.

More info See in Glossary in the imported Model so that you can animate it. For Humanoid characters, this means assigning or creating an Avatar. For non-Humanoid Generic characters, this means identifying a Root bone in the skeleton. By default, when you select a Model in the Project In Unity, you use a Project to design and develop a game. A Project stores all of the files that are related to a game, such as the Asset and Scene files. If Unity has never imported the file, the Animation Type is set to None :.

Generic Animations do not use Avatars like Humanoid animations An animation using humanoid skeletons. Humanoid models generally have the same basic structure, representing the major articulate parts of the body, head and limbs.

This makes it easy to map animations from one humanoid skeleton to another, allowing retargeting and inverse kinematics. More info See in Glossary do. Since the skeleton can be arbitrary, you must specify which bone is the Root node. The Root node allows Unity to establish consistency between Animation clips Animation data that can be used for animated characters or simple animations.

Specifying the root node helps Unity determine between movement of the bones relative to each other, and motion of the Root node in the world controlled from OnAnimatorMove. With rare exceptions, humanoid models have the same basic structure.

This structure represents the major articulated parts of the body: the head and limbs. More info See in Glossary. When you enable the Optimize Game Object property, Unity ignores any Transform which is part of the hierarchy but is not mapped in the Avatar, in order to improve CPU performance.

However, you can mark specific nodes in the GameObject The fundamental object in Unity scenes, which can represent characters, props, scenery, cameras, waypoints, and more. More info See in Glossary hierarchy to include in calculations using the Extra Transforms to Expose section:.Rune Skovbo JohansenFebruary 7, The humanoid animation option in Unity 4 makes it possible to retarget the same animations to different characters.

The characters can have different proportions and skeleton rigs where the bones have different names etc. Fortunatelyfor the majority of models this otherwise lengthy setup process is completely automatic. For every one of those you have to drag the transform into the corresponding slot in the GUI when you use the manual method.

When I first joined the effort to improve the interface for Mecanim, that was the only way to setup characters. For anyone who wanted to experience the Mecanim awesomeness with their own characters, there was first these bones to drag in with the mouse, one by one. So I began looking into how to do that automatically. How do you make a computer figure out what transforms correspond to which human bones? There is more than one way to go about it….

One seemingly straightforward option is to use the names of the transforms. But unfortunately, some of the most commonly used terms are actually used to describe different bones in different models. Just determining if a bone is for the left or right side is a mini challenge by itself.

However, those letters can also be part of a word, so I only regard them as side keywords if they stand by themselves, separated from the rest of the string by spaces, punctuation, or similar. Some information can be inferred by looking at the direction of a bone. Direction matches of different child transforms are computed using dot products of the normalized transform direction compared to a target human bone direction, and a score is awarded accordingly.

Where the bone direction information really shines is in figuring out the mapping for the fingers, where there is often nothing else to go by. While proportions of different models differ, there are usually some aspects of the proportions that are consistent for most models. For example, the upper leg and lower leg usually have roughly the same length, while the length of the foot is typically much shorter.

The length of the upper arm bone is usually about twice as long as the length of the collar bone, when present.

The length ratios contribute a lot to ensuring sensible mappings. The upper arm also has a bone in between the shoulder joint and elbow joint used for twisting of the upper arm but nothing in the name necessarily indicates this. This would be completely wrong.

But thanks to the length ratios, this scenario is almost always avoided and the bones are mapped correctly. Another place where the length ratios shine is for the bones in the spine. The spine in a model can consist of any number of bones, but they have to be mapped in a sensible way to just the following human bones: Hips, spine, chest optionalneck optionaland head.

If you have, say, 8 transforms in the spine, how should they be mapped?

The names are no use, and the bone directions are all the same. Just attempting an even distribution gives terrible results. Instead we strive towards these length ratios: spine-chest should be 1.

Chest-neck should be 1. Neck-head should be 0.Discussion in ' Animation ' started by Shadowblitz16Sep 26, Search Unity. Log in Create a Unity ID. Unity Forum. Forums Quick Links. Asset Store Spring Sale has begun! Unite Now has started!

You can find fog settings under your scene lighting.

This is known to occur when a reference camera is assigned in the scene descriptor such as when adding post processing effectsand a water object is added to the scene that uses its own camera to produce reflections. Either remove the reference camera, or remove the water. It is also useful to know that you can figure out what causes a crash by a process of elimination by way of disabling half the objects in your scene except those you need to be able to build and then building to see what happens.

Keep disabling more and more until the crash goes away, and you've found the offending object.

You need to flip the 'normals' of any polygon that is not facing the right direction so that Unity knows the correct side of a polygon is never seen and thus shouldn't be drawn culled. Either try click 'recalculate normals' in Unity in the inspector window when the model is selected in the project window, and pray In Unity try removing any specular map or setting the material from Standard Specular to just Standard. Open the model in a 3D Modeling studio such as Maya or Blender and make sure that you remove doubles for vertices to force nearby vertices to combine, thus joining nearby polygons.

You may need to combine multiple mesh objects if available into one single mesh object before removing doubles. Some bones may need to be manually rotated in Unity's bone assignment configuration screen. For instance the fingers of your model may be malformed, due to the bones assigned to the fingers having a bad rotation applied. You may need to manually fix some of the rigging weights which vertices of your models polygons are influenced by the motions of which bones, and how strong that influence may be and in the case of polygons that don't move, make sure their vertices have been weighted to the required bone.

Sometimes you may also have vertices that are weighted too strongly or simply to the wrong bone.


This requires a 3D modeling studio to repair such as Maya or Blender. Try applying a smooth shader operation in the 3D modeling studio of your choice. Make sure you understand how to mark edges as 'sharp' or how to manually shade only the polygon faces that need it. In general, try to make sure your avatar has less than 20, polygons. Use a 3D modeling studio to reduce the polygon count. In particular you may use the 'Decimate' modifier in Blender to easily reduce the polygon count to below 20, polygons with only a few clicks.

Additionally, ensure your model has as few materials as possible, preferably only one Less than 5 if you don't know how to texture atlas.

A technique to do this is called "Texture Atlasing" and can be done either automatically through a tool like CATS Blender tool, or manually for significantly better results. Certain types of shaders that change textures into a more 3 dimensional shape or cause a lot of render times will also cause performance issues. You need to make sure the feet of your avatar are at the x,y and z 0 location in the 3d modeling program before it is exported as an FBX, etc.

Alternatively, you can make your avatar a child of an empty gameobject and apply any rotations to the gameobject instead, however it is better to fix the orientations on the model itself than to work around it using empty parents, as using empties for various models will eventually clutter and get your scene messy.

Make sure you set the models animation type to humanoid and applied the change before you compile the. If Unity warns you that the texture hasn't been marked as a normal map, navigate to the normal map section of the selected material and select the "Fix This" button.

It is recommended that you manually alter the many settings to get it to look just right. An example of this being particular imported game models from other game engines may implement normal maps inverted, however "CrazyBump" allows you to reverse this by simply setting the strength modifier to the opposite parity, example being going from 50 strength, to strength.

It may also be useful to remove any other textures such as height maps and occlusion maps, and instead leave only the albedo and normal map when evaluating your model to make sure the other maps aren't obscuring your objective view of the normal maps influence.

If you spawn in your world and a grey block appears below you, usually this indicates an issue with your player spawn location objects. Make sure you have properly configured and added your spawns, and that they are children of the map root object. If you have keys that are supposed to trigger something for anyone that hits the key in the room, and it does not work. Instead you will want to add a child object to the root, and place all your scripts on this child object.Basically, i made an character in Magicavoxel, rigged it using Mixamo auto-rigger and downloaded some premade animations to it and everything was working fine.

Then, of course i also wan't my own custom animations, so i imported the rigged character into Blender and made my first animation.

I exported the animations into unity and the problem appears when i changed the animation in to humanoid, pressed "Copy from another avatar" and chose the original character avatar. I went to the animation tab and found that there was an import error message saying: "Copied avatar rig configuration mis-match. Transform hierarchy does not match: Transform "Armature" not found in humandescription". I dragged the custom animation and the premade animation in to the hierarchy and found out that the custom one had an extra gameobject called "Armature" which was an parent to the root bone Hips.

Is it possible to export an animation without the "Armature" in blender?

If so, please tell me. I found the solution I imported my all mixamo animations from blender and blender added that extra bone to all of them. Hey, Im having the same problem can anyone tell me wich bone to remove in Blender?

invalid avatar rig configuration

But it worked. The object imported, and animated. But when I delete the face, of which is parented to the head bone, Unity says, after import cannot find head? I don't get this. All I did was delete all the face bones beneath head. I don't know how to fix it. After it is rigged, the bone that was spine. Why can't it find it? So Im stuck between having a face I dont want. I've since had more experience with this. If you've done this already but are still having problems, comment on this answer and I'll do my best to help you.

For easier navigation I renamed the spine bones like this:. You change the parent to what you think would make sense, or you can check it current parent.

You want the shoulders to be children of the chest and the pelvis to be children of the lower spine. All legs bones to be children of the pelvis. Not the trick for me unfortunately, Rocket. And as said, all I did was modify the Amature so to delete face and everything within face, leaving the parent spine.

I cannot see why you cannot delete bones from rigify amatures that are not parents, or what the issue is with the setup to do that.

Because when the face was undeleted, unity had no problem finding the head, and the only difference, was there was a face underneath the head. Beats me. Create avatar. I had all the correct settings. It worked with the face included. It seems deleting the face bones in blender, mucks something up. Oh, well it's hard to say without your specific files and engine version and to be honest I'm not the best person to answer that.

I am pretty good at eventually solving problems but explaining how isn't my strong-suit, however. If it does, let me know and I'll download your specific engine version and if you feel comfortable, your blender file and I'll try to solve this myself.

How to retarget animation to another (faulty?) character model

Note: Using the Re-import button in Unity on existing assets rarely if ever works for me you need to delete the existing asset and manually import that asset again. I don't know why it's not working either, as I'm not too shabby in the problem solving area. When I use blender I always save in increments, and before I parented the mesh etc. The time consuming part was aligning the vertex points.

Once everything was alligned, then I saved before anything else.
