FBX mess

The image shows the skeleton with all its bones at the correct position but incorrect orientation. Behind that is the character's boot which is lying sideways so either the skeleton is not scaled properly or the character.

Recap: Need to find out how to get bones to orient properly. Need to find out how to get the shapes to orient the same direction as the skeleton. Need to find out how to get everything at the correct scale.

I have been using an alternative FBX importer with good success rate. You can download the tool and script at http://blenderfbx.render.jp/

The default fbx importer that comes with blender often could not resolve rigs, and rotation and scale just get screwed. For fbx you will need to download an extra set of software, follow the installation instruction closely. After installing the software and the addon... importing fbx should be a breeze.
