public function MatchTarget(matchPosition: Vector3, matchRotation: Quaternion, targetBodyPart: AvatarTarget, weightMask: MatchTargetWeightMask, startNormalizedTime: float, targetNormalizedTime: float = 1): void;
public void MatchTarget(Vector3 matchPosition, Quaternion matchRotation, AvatarTarget targetBodyPart, MatchTargetWeightMask weightMask, float startNormalizedTime, float targetNormalizedTime = 1);


matchPosition The position we want the body part to reach.
matchRotation The rotation in which we want the body part to be.
targetBodyPart The body part that is involved in the match.
weightMask Structure that contains weights for matching position and rotation.
startNormalizedTime Start time within the animation clip (0 - beginning of clip, 1 - end of clip).
targetNormalizedTime End time within the animation clip (0 - beginning of clip, 1 - end of clip), values greater than 1 can be set to trigger a match after a certain number of loops. Ex: 2.3 means at 30% of 2nd loop.


Automatically adjust the gameobject position and rotation so that the AvatarTarget reaches the matchPosition when the current state is at the specified progress.

Target matching only works on the base layer (index 0). You can only queue one match target at a time and you must wait for the first one to finish, otherwise your target matching will be discarded. MatchTarget cannot be used alongside SetTarget, as they both affect a mutual state. If you call a MatchTarget with a start time lower than the clip's current normalize time and the clip can loop, MatchTarget will adjust the time to match the next clip loop. ex: start time= 0.2 current normalize time = 0.3, start time will be 1.2.

public class TargetMatchingManager : MonoBehaviour { public void MatchTarget (Vector3 matchPosition, Quaternion matchRotation, AvatarTarget target, MatchTargetWeightMask weightMask, float normalisedStartTime, float normalisedEndTime) { if (animator.isMatchingTarget) return;

float normalizeTime = Mathf.Repeat(animator.GetCurrentAnimatorStateInfo(0).normalizedTime, 1f);

if (normalizeTime > normalisedEndTime) return;

animator.MatchTarget (matchPosition, matchRotation, target, weightMask, normalisedStartTime, normalisedEndTime); } }
