Using the Mixamo rig add-on for Blender

In this video, we'll take a look at the Mixamo rig addon for Blender. The main function of the addon is to create a Control Rig for characters downloaded from the Mixamo service. The Control Rig features useful rig controls such as IK/FK arms and legs.

Not every Mixamo rig can be converted to a Control Rig, however. This can be confusing and frustrating. I'll show you exactly what works and what doesn't.

In addition, I show how to combine multiple animations that you apply to the Mixamo control rig using blender's NLA (non-linear animation).
