I have used the reshape to blocks modifier to turn a lowpoly model into a voxel model. The result it perfect.
But my initial lowpoly model was rigged and animated. The vertex groups and the rig look also good on the reshaped voxel model, but all weight painting has been lost.
Is there a way to keep the weight painting or do I have to weight paint on my own?
I tryed to "Transfer Mesh Data" and played with the options, but here the results of the transfered weight look bad.
I also tryed to assign the weight paint automaticaly (In pose mode assign automatic from bones), but this option is not available for some reason. I cant click on the button, its grey.
One last thing, Eventhough the reshaped result looks great, its not effcient. There could be a lot less triangles. Is there a way to optimize the mesh? Or is it just the way the reshaper works? I have to optimize it myself then?
On the right the lowpoly model rigged and animated, everything works, weight are also there.
On the left the reshaped voxel model. It is also rigged (its the same armature) Vertex Groups exist and are named the same, but the weight paint is lost.
