Rigging a character for Unreal Engine 4 with Blender, Rigify and Uefy 2

A tutorial on how to use Uefy 2.0 to rig characters that already have a skeleton for Unreal Engine 4 marketplace animations.

Uefy 2

In this video we take a prebuilt mixamo character that already has a skeleton. The original skeleton is missing several bones we need in the engine. Such as the root bone required for root motion.

We will update it’s skeleton for use with UE4, so we can use marketplace animation sets. While also adding a rigify animation rig to create new animations. Uefy 2.0 modifies the rig so it does not cause issues in the game engine that would normally be encountered by using rigify.

At the end we have a character that can easily use purchased animation sets as well as our own custom animation made in blender.
