View Full Version : Proxy model switching

06 June 2006, 12:00 PM
How should I rig in a proxy model? Is there a tutorial?

I have a high res geometry from an older program which I skinned in Maya already, but didn't use a proxy.

If I cut the model up and parent it to the FBIK rig, how do I switch in and out the hi res?

why not have the low rez and the high rez model on seperate layers? hide and unhide them respectively as needed.

And rig them both to the same skeleton? Sound good to me long as hiding the hi reduces the amount of RAM and yeilds fast interactivity...that's the goal.

I saw a book that uses some type of smoothing switch, turning the low into a high res. I would like to use any method that's the standard.

yes, rig them to the same skeleton. not sure if hiding will reduce RAM consumption but it certainly will yeild faster interactivity.
