Hi Blender Community,
i created this addon for @GloriaTheAnimat to speed up applying of modifiers on objects that have shapekeys. I updated the addon today and thought i should also post it here, to make it more accessible.
This Addon automates the process of collapsing down modifiers on a mesh with shapekeys while keeping the shapekeys intact.
How to Install
Download the zipfile from the Releases page and install via Blenders Addon-Preferences
Edit > Preferences > Add-ons > Install… > SKkeeper.zip
How to Use
This Addon adds 3 new operators which can be found in via the Quick Search floater ( **Hotkey: F3) and typing “shapekey” or anything else in the names listed below:
Sk: Apply All Modifiers (Keep Shapekeys)
- Applies all modifiers on the object
Sk: Apply Subdivision (Keep Shapekeys)
- Applies only the top most subdivision modifier and keeps the others
Sk: Apply Chosen Modifiers (Keep Shapekeys) (Added in this update [version 1.2])
- Shows a popup with all modifiers on the object and only applies those you select
- Might lead to unexpected behaviour if you choose to apply modifiers that aren’t at the top of the modifier stack
Select the Object you want to apply modifiers to and select one of the options.
It also add 3 menu entries to the 3DViews >> Object Menu:
