Ive been doing some animations involving Words that are animated and jump around (not the most stimulating of projects but then i wasnt the AD on this one... hold on, i never get to be the AD :(
Anyway, in their wisdom, the client turned up today and decided the letters shouldnt be "capital letter" as we had decided at the start of the project but the should be "little" letters :'(
So, these words are rigged using the biped guide from XSi, my question is what is the most efficient way of replacing the geometry? Ive tried saving out the animation as a clip but when i bring in the new model (which has the exact same biped rig) it wont "link" up or if it does it goes crazy i.e bits of model flying off in random directions, the orientation is screwed etc
What would you guys suggest, and while im at it, what the hell happened to Reference models???
