Hope the title is clear enough
I have a question for you which is troubling me for some time now. Where I work we need to make a 3D model of a human within quite a short amount of time. Since I am fairly inexperienced at that area of modeling, we have been contacting another company who will be providing us with the needed models and animations. But there is one strange thing that’s troubling me.
They ask for a certain amount of money for the base model, which is quite a lot imho. (No need for exact details at this point). But the thing is, they say the price is so high, because they work with multiple skeletons in 1 model. IE: one skeleton (rigging) for all the basic animations, like walking, and 1 skeleton for all the finer animations.
But here is my trouble, they are asking for quite a lot of money, but the way he said it was not really convincing. To be truthful, I think they are making this one up to ask more. What are your thoughts on this matter? Is it really necessary / even possible to work with multiple skeletons in 1 model?
If you need more information, please ask, thanks in advance for thinking with me on this one.
