A common beginner’s complaint in the Fuse forums is the confusion of how to set up Unity’s Standard Shader to interpret alpha channels. The Standard Shader has four opacity modes: Opaque, Cutout, Fade, and Transparent. Unity detects the alpha channel in the Fuse textures and defaults to transparent – appropriate for glasses but not hair or eyelashes.
Saulth created a script to simplify the import workflow of Adobe (Mixamo) Fuse CC figures in Unity. In addition to fixing the opacity issues, the script will also:
- Set shader render modes correctly per material
- Create new materials for Eyes and Eyelashes
- Correct the MetallicAndSmoothness map (has inverted alpha)
- Set texture import settings correctly (alpha channel, normal maps)
- Set smoothness per material to roughly match visuals in Adobe Fuse CC (beta)
- Create prefab ready for easy use

Adobe has announced the new version of its figure creation tool. Originally scheduled to be released in July 2015 as Mixamo Fuse 1.4, Mixamo was acquired by Adobe and instead is bundled as a Creative Cloud “Preview” app. The new version can save a figure to Adobe’s cloud, as well as Mixamo’s website which is still functional for existing Mixamo members – at least for now.
Fuse is a standalone app that generates user-customized medium-poly humanoid models. A subscription service directly leverages Mixamo’s online Auto-rigger to convert static meshes into fully-rigged bipedal figures. Face blendshapes were added in version 1.3, making the figures suitable for lip synch and facial animation. Fuse had been gaining 3rd-party support in indie game circles, until the Adobe purchase caused uncertainty with the future of its subscription-based model.
Integration with Adobe Photoshop allows Fuse figures to be opened in a 3D layer and posed with Mixamo presets. A demonstration video shows the figure’s bones and blendshape expression morphs fully functional within Photoshop CC, and the model’s textures edited directly in Photoshop.
