In this simple tutorial, we are going to share with you how can you fix this problem easily! 

Introduction

In our game, we are sharing Maximo animations on our humanoid characters. But the outcome isn't what we have expected. Our characters are floating when performing the animations. 

Solution

1) Open the animator that you characters are using.

2) Click on the animation that you like to fix on the animator.

3) You will notice you are able to toggle between two screens on the inspector tab when you click on the animation multiple times. 

4) Firstly, tick the Foot IK box. Then click on the animation on animator again. Then set Root Transform Position (Y) to Feet instead of Original.
