I've modeled a simple monster with arms and legs.. no spine. it's like a sphere with four limbs. I've attached a skeleton to it but when i try to animate it, the whole thing becomes extremely slow, much slower than when you put etho (by mike isner) and run script together. My model has lesser polygons than the standard man/woman model.
Could it be that the operator stack on the model is slowing things down? Right now the sphere has about 30 things in it's stack. Should i freeze them? Or is my skeleton bad??
And what is a rig? I've made a skeleton and put the rotation limits on it.. so i don't understand what a rig is, is it an extension of a basic skeleton or does it have to be made from something else?.. please explain someone.
thanks v much
