Copy a Figure1 into Figure 2
« on: March 13, 2012, 05:35:32 pm »

Hi

I am trying to make my life more simple.  I have a person rigged as a figure.  I want to take him and all his bones and copy him into a new figure and just tweak the new figure a bit and have a new figure, totally separate from the first.  Is this possible?  I selected ALL and tried to past into a new figure and 'paste' is dimmed  :(

Just use the rig (Bone skeleton) and attach the new model to it.

To make a copy of your figure, go to Figure->Export... then export it as a .an8 file (.3ds is default, which exports only the polygonal info) in a temporary location. Then go to Figure->Import... and import that figure. Voila!
