Experimenting with Object Data and Object in the Properties.

I was experimenting with Object Data and Object in the Properties. Check Images attached.



I took an object and I went to the object data and set it to a different objects data. It changed the object to that one at least look. Is there any value to this in animation or in any project if so what? If not well it was fun to find.

One tab is for objects, one tab is for meshes.

If it’s possible to animate this value, you could use it for stopmotion-style replacement animation if you had say a different mesh per mouth position instead of using a rig or shapekeys.

The Mesh DataBlock at least what I have tried does not seem to let me animate it. To bad that could actually be useful. Thanks Quollism and Atom thanks I may end up using that add on probably just for fun.

Shape keys could be considered a close equivalent for animating the datablock.
