In order for "Wonder Studio" to know how to transfer animation to your character, it needs the proper joint mapping.
To start joint mapping, simply click on the "Joint Mapping" button.

There are three ways to map the bones:
- 1.Clicking on the "Auto Assign Bones" button. (Currently, we support naming conventions for the following packages:
Character Creator 4,
- 2.Selecting the bone and clicking on theicon.
- 3.Typing the name of the bone and hitting

The same bone can't be assigned to multiple fields.
If all bones have been mapped correctly the UI should look like this:
And the "joint mapping" validation on the main page will receive a green checkmark.
