I got Auto-Rig Pro recently, I kinda need help figuring it out.

After I skin my bones to my mesh with their custom handles and go into pose mode, I move the armature and not the mesh.
They are bound correctly, just for some reason they are not moving.

If anyone has the time and has Auto-Rig Pro, I have the file on my google drive labeled "help plz".

  • $\begingroup$ yeah sorry about that, i deleted the rig because if you are using the auto rig then load someone elses blend file with yours, it gets a bit messy from my experience, if you try rigging it, you will see what I mean $\endgroup$

You've probably worked this out by now, but in case anyone else finds this in here, the documentation helped a lot:


I went through this one-by-one, and in the end the problem was cause by only two vertices in the same place! After doing a 'merge by distance' (Alt+M) it removed two vertices and suddenly it worked.

It seems a little crazy that it's so sensitive, but I guess there's some reason, and the answer was in the documents. Let's give a shout out to whoever writes and updates documentation - it's probably a very thankless task and we all rely on them. Cheers document person!


I think it's mostly that your vertex groups names don't correspond to your rig's bones. A bone can deform only the mesh assigned to a group with its name.
