Copy animation from one rig to another? (different rig / character)

Hi there.

I have one character with one animation and I want to reuse this animation for a different character, the rigs are done with Rigify and the character names are different, how can I do that?

Cheers and thanks!

You should be able to do it with the action editor, just select the action of your animation. It should work if the bones have the same name.
I’m not that experienced when it comes to rigging though, but that worked for me.

Correct. the “key” bones have to have same nomenclature. Thereafter its only a matter of 're-targeting" the animation. Pointing it to the new rig.
