Animation Retargeting Tool for Maya

A tool for transferring animation data and mocap from a skeleton to a custom rig in Autodesk Maya.


  1. Add to your Maya scripts folder (Username\Documents\maya\scripts).
  2. To start the tool within Maya, run these these lines of code from the Maya script editor or add them to a shelf button:

import animation_retargeting_tool

Known bugs:

  • The bake animation is a tad bit slow. Might have to replace the BakeResults command with something more robust.
  • The script is not compatible with Maya 2022 at the moment. I just need to add a check which Python version the Maya instance is running.
