Set the auto rig settings as follows.
Apply your animations and keep them in place for standard character types.
Down load 2 versions of the character
One with skin and one without skin. The one without skin is for the animation.
When each one is done rename it so the next will not over write it.

It will look like this.
Press <edit> <Add FBX animation to animation set>
