Mixamo’s Maya Auto-Control Rig Script is a Python script that works with current versions of Maya to make it easier than ever to start hand-animating or customizing Mixamo animations on any Auto-Rigged character. Download for free at: https://www.mixamo.com/scripts
This tutorial walks you through the new features of version 1.6.0 of the script. Now the script automatically generates a facial control rig for Fuse characters (or rather, any character compatible with Face Plus). The animation import is now simpler and new import and export batching features make integrating customized animation into any pipeline a breeze. Improved Utilities allow for more customization of your rig.
No Module Error:
If you get an error saying there is No Module then the script hasn’t been installed correctly. There are two possible causes:
1. You haven’t selected the right folder. Make sure you’re only instlaling the “MayaAutoControlRig” folder (NOT the entire Mixamo_Auto_Control_Rig_v_1_6_0 created from the .zip parent folder).
2. The standard directory install location isn’t right for your Maya (custom Maya install most likely). You can find what paths Maya is currently looking for modules by running this short script in the Maya Python editor – make sure to “tab” indent the print path line.
for path in sys.path:
This script will return a list of directories – place the “MayaAutoControlRig” folder at one of those locations!
