mixamo animation problems

Whenever I download an animation from mixamo.com the legs and feet of the character are always moving around and look nothing like on the website. I am using the same exact model and skeleton that I uploaded to the website, but yet on the website the animations are fine. Any ideas how to fix this?

In the import settings for your character under the tab “rig” is the animation type “generic”? because if its humanoid, generic animations wont work.

to anyone who reads this, I had the same problem.
the solution is to setup the animation import correctly and apply the generic’s root transformations to the animation when converting to humanoid.

hope this saves someone some time
