    Can someone please explain how to switch the entire animation from FK to IK. This is the main thing animators use and it isn't clear. I am getting weird results doing this and not understanding how this rig is working. What controls are doing what. Now my rig is in a mess and its blending from ik to fk multiple times and I have no idea what it is doing.

    "Just switch out the mesh with the final when you're done!" He never really says One Word about HOW! I walk away from 2 successive viewings 100% unsure how to make ANY use of this on an existing character. (I have zero interest in animating 'mannequins' (GOOD LORD…) In the first 10 seconds of the video, I should have understood the basic paradigm of the tool, I am left wondering WHERE TO EVEN FIND IT much less how to actually incorporate it! I have Unrea open, I have my rigged character I made in 3ds Max loaded… Now What? LOL… USELESS. He bounces around like he's on Adderal.

    I have watched way too long to still be wondering: How to use this on an actual character instead of the silly, useless pointless mannequin that might have been relevant for a few years in the early 90's, but now, we just make and work on our assets, not create everything out of order!! (Else the assets LOOK like they were animated, before they existed!)

    HEY PEOPLE! If you are watching this tutorial in the first time don't worry about his speech speed. The video is Overview, just keep going watching tutorials by playlist. The next video is going to be for beginners.

    Its easy to export the rig and mesh (the character) from Maya 17 student to Unreal , but what DOESENT follow are the morph targets/ blendshapes. I've edited the AnimRig mb file and it works great to import for different projects. but when exporting to FBX and into Unreal, the Blendshapes/ morph targets wont follow. with different settings sometimes even the mesh that have blendshapes wont follow. When opening the Export File for exporting, the blendshapes arn't there.

    I've searched everywhere for a solution and this is my last hope… help please?
