Hi @Diego. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The information provided does not specifically mention how to create a full body IK remote avatar using Final IK. However, it does mention that if you are using a plugin like VRIK for IK movement on avatars, you need to wire it up to RealtimeAvatarManager’s Root, Head, and Hand transform inputs. This will ensure that your RealtimeAvatar instance matches the transforms of your camera rig instead of using the default Unity XR APIs source (https://normcore.io/documentation/realtime/common-questions#im-using-a-vrik-plugin-for-ik-movement-on-avatars-when-i-teleport-or-move-my-camera-rig-the-rig-moves-but-my-avatar-doesnt-whats-going-on). For more detailed information, I recommend checking the official documentation or tutorials related to Final IK and Normcore. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

just googled it, but it's pretty straight forward put the IK rig as child of the realtime avatar, set the ik targets as children of the avatar head and hands

I thought so too and I followed this guide here: https://jeffrafter.com/unity-multiplayer-vr-with-normcore/ which does that, but I had no luck.

that's a pretty comprehensive guide

At the end it's a pretty short section on the full body avatar implementation. But I think what I missed is moving the IK targets as childrens of the Head and Left/Right Hand of the Custom avatar.

I think VRIK has the foot placement built in, not sure about other IK solutions

Awesome! Got VRIK working but is lagging and not jumping when I'm jumping.

you have to play a jump animation if you want the legs to lift up

But the whole avatar is grounded Okay jumping now works too (there was a setting: "Keep Planted" on the VRIK component
