View Full Version : maya replace object animation

05-12-2008, 06:02 PM
Hey Guys,

I have an animated object and I want to replace the object with a different one and keep the same animation. Pretty much swap the object and keep all the animation. Is this possible and if so how? I am using Maya.

If the transformation axis are the same, you can always cut and paste the animation from the channel box. (Right click while selecting the channels).

However if they are not, you can always hide the object and constrain controller of the the new object to the controller of the old object. If you need to changes, just use the old controller.
