Is it possible to get a head swap on the same body as a rig or something? Like switching between characters. Not for shape keys, I mean switch different faces or expressions or turn into a monster.

  • $\begingroup$ what kind of transition do you want to achieve? there are many artistic possibilities. In shows there are usually multiple variants of the same character with different rigs that are used for different purposes. One of those may be used just for transitioning from one head to another. How exactly this is setup again depends on the effect you want to achieve. What do you have in mind? $\endgroup$

One way you can do is (if you didn't do any weight painting on your mesh until now):

Select your object, Tab -> Edit mode, then delete all your head vertices.

Tab -> object mode. Move your "new" head to its position in object mode.

Select your new head, Shift-select your body, CTRL-J to join.

Then Shift-select your armature, press CTRL-P -> with automatic weights -> done.
