For our project I need to record the movements of the hands of an avatar. When I use the GameObjectRecorder scripts, and convert this animation from Generic to Humanoid, the Animation Converter creates all these extra bones, and drops most of the bones from the Generic animation.

What can I do to fix this?

Hi Maarten,
thank you very much for your support request.

When converting to humanoid, the Animation Converter creates animation curves for all humanoid bones defined in the humanoid avatar for that character. The humanoid avatar is a simplification of a real human's anatomy and thus often doesn't contain as much bones as the generic 3D model.

The humanoid animation the Animation Converter creates is always describing the pose of the whole body (that's also what Unity does when importing animations as humanoid). If you want to map only parts of that animation to your character, use an avatar mask in your Animator state machine to mask only those body parts you need.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
