Make any Blender character compatible with the UE Mannequin


Todor Nikolov writes:

We just released a new tool for Blender. It allows you to make any humanoid character compatible with the Unreal Engine 4 Mannequin rig. (Compatibility with UE5 and more Unreal features are planned.)

This opens up a lot of possibilities for reusing the Mannequin's animations (including the many free and paid animations available on the Unreal marketplace.)

The tool is part of our Game Rig Tools addon as a separate Unreal module.

Find all about the Mannequin features:

Game Rig Tools addon is available as pay-what-you-want on Gumroad or $15 on the Blender Market.

    Please change the tittle to ” Make any Blender character compatible $ with the UE Mannequin” to inform that this is tutorial to use other product whitch has pricetag.

      • I am happy with whatever you decide.

        This must be a pretty close call because the first time I shared the original release of the addon, I marked it as non-commercial but it was changed to [$].
        So to keep things consistent, this time I marked it as [$] but it was changed to non-commercial :P
