transfering animatino

Post by Shredder565 » 26 Mar 2016, 22:18

occasionally a model will get messed up. rather than doing something ALLLL over again, how can I transfer the old animation to a new model?

I've never been able to figrue it out.

Animation mixer is your friend - as long you have same names in skeleton and structure of rig. If not there are naming templates, but it's really good idea to keep the same pattern. If so, store animation as clip, export to hard disk, import in mixer of new model, apply action. Or, if both models are loaded in scene, you can just drag and drop the action, from old to new model.
