Auto-Rigger Best Practices


Character model upload requirements

Make sure your file is less than 30 MB, in either A-pose or T-pose and is a bipedal humanoid.

FBX format

If you are uploading an FBX file, make sure that the embed media option is selected when you export the FBX.

OBJ format

If you are uploading your character as an OBJ file, follow these steps:

  1. Export the character as an OBJ with materials option on
  2. Take the OBJ, MTL, and texture files and zip them
  3. Upload the ZIP file to Mixamo.com

How much does it cost?

It is always free to upload and preview your Auto-Rigged character, but $50 / use unless you have All Access
