I have a character that is completely rigged in a file and I want to bring it in to multiple other files so all my changes show up without needing to do each one. Ok, I read through the wiki section on appending and linking (http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Manual/Using_Linked_Libraries) and the proxy sounds like the ticket. But I’m having a few issues…
I’ve put all the little bits for the character in a group and when I append the group works fine. But when I try linking it nothing shows up in the 3D window or the outliner. So thats problem #1.
So then I go into the objects folder and since only have the characters components in the file I just select all and then it will import. Ok, it wont let me select everything and convert it to a proxy. So I select the mesh, convert it, select the armature and convert it…only now they aren’t linked any more.
I’m using 2.46 if that makes any difference. I’d appreciate any suggestions!
