I setup a armature on a robot, but my robot is dense and slow. I have my high poly mesh on layer 1 and my low poly mesh on layer 11. I know that I can just rig both high and low poly to the same armature. However, I’m not exactly sure what are the steps to link in the low poly rig, perform some key frame animation, then replace my low poly with the high poly later. So far, I thought about doing this:
- Rig low and high poly to armature.
- create 2 groups. one low and one high.
- link in the low rig, make proxy and animate.
- once done, do I just simply link in the high poly rig?
Since it is using the same armature, the high poly rig will just inherit the keyframe animation. I just don’t know if this is the cleanest or proper way to do it. Can’t even find anything on the internet about it. Thanks.
