Hey, I have been trying to export an FBX animation from blender into studio for way too long without any sort of luck, the issue is that secondary bones (eg: arms/legs) will seem to be inverted(?) when imported into the default Roblox animator.
Current FBX export settings (assume that any settings not shown in this screenshot are the default):
So far I have looked at pretty much every post on the Blender and RobloxDev forum’s which somewhat relate to the issue with zero luck and have tried basically every combination of FBX export settings in blender.
If you have absolutely any idea on what the issue is I will be extremely grateful, this problem has been killing me for months.
It’s hard to tell because I cannot see your animation timeline in the images (And I cannot open the blend file at the moment since I am on mobile), but make sure that your animation frame rate is the same in blender as it is in studio. In addition, I have seen that the start frames of an animation being different in blender and studio can cause problems. Try setting the start frame of your animation in blender to 1 instead of the default 0 to match how it is in studio. Also, maybe avoid using ik with your bones; I don’t know if Roblox fully supports it.
I already have the start frame set to 1 with the same framerate in blender and studio and am not currently using ik constraints, i believe i have figured out the issue however havent tested my idea yet
ah so your idea is to just replace my current armature with the lola one, ill check that out later
got to this however things like shirts and pants wouldnt work on my rig and if i uploaded the animation to roblox and tried to insert the animation onto a normal r15/s15 rig i would still get the same messy result
finally figured it out! the issue was that i had to set all the bones roll to 0 and pointing exactly Z up, that took way longer to figure out than it should have. once again big thanks for helping me fix this problem
When the bones point straight up, you have the S1 rig. In the S15 lola rig, the bones point to the side, and due to some naming shenanigans, they merge with the parts. Both are backwards compatible with R15, so you are golden!
The S1 rig was never given to us. I agree it took too long to figure out. But, like the lola rig, you can just copy this over to any custom avatar. Have fun!
