Append Doesn't Work -- Help!

I am working in a newer version of my animation. A rigging is needed from an earlier versior.

  • I select FILE -> APPEND… -> the file and select the Armature in question.

  • Nothing happens.

Can someone help me import this complicated rigging?
What steps must I perform to bring in the armature from the old file and move the hand rigging to the newer model?


Unless you append the object, it only imports the datablock of the armature, not the actual object. What you’d have to do is create an armature object and link it with the one you imported (with the datablock select drop down menu in the Edit settings window).
