To get an idea of the UE 5.2 IK retargeting workflow, start with the project template: Games > Third Person. This guide describes how to retarget to the UE5 Mannequin rig and it can be applied to any other rig the same way.

  1. Create a MoveOne folder where you will store MoveOne data

  2. Import the move-one.fbx, check Import Animations

  3. In the Windows explorer (not inside Unreal Engine) Copy IK_MoveOne.uasset to the created MoveOne folder of your Unreal project

  4. If you're working inside the UE template project "Third Person", open Content > Characters > Mannequins > Rigs > RTG_Mannequin. If you're working in your own project, create an IK Retargeter and a target IK Rig files and setup them accordingly to UE documentation

  5. In the Source IKRig Asset, select the IK_MoveOne file

  6. Set the Retarget Pose to T Pose

  7. In the Preview Scene Settings change the Preview Controller to the Use Specific Animation and select the MoveOne animation sequence

  8. To remove bone mapping artifacts, click Auto-Map Chains and select Map All (Exact)
