hope I found the right place for this problem.
I am currently handling a model I downloaded from blendswap. Since I can’t post a link 'cause I’m new to this forum:
It’s the only one if you type “Moth” in the search on Blendswap Com.
I’m trying to size it down. If I do, the legs of the moth don’t size down. I can’t select them individually. If I want to delete them (Would be sufficient since the moth will be small in this shot), Blender deletes the entire torso (body), leaving only wings. Tried to select the legs in Edit Mode, but the entire torso + legs disappear when I enter edit mode. Already tried all kinds of Hide/UnHide (Alt+H, Ctrl+H, Shift+H, H) Anybody?
In another shot, there will be a swarm of moths. For them not to flap their wings at the same time, I want to make 10 copies of the same moth, offsetting the wing-swinging, then add a lot of children each copy. The children will form the swarm. Problem is, I cannot copy the entire moth including rigs, actions, animation… I can only copy the rig or the meshes. Can somebody help me? If there is a better way to achieve the same result, I’m open to every approach.
I’d share my own project file, but I’m not allowed to post links and the upload feature fails all the time. Hope that the model from blendswap is enough!
