u need to turn off male animations for this?? messy, isn't it?
Not necessarily, it depends on how you go about doing it. The switching out animations is actually the easy part, since you don't even need to open the model in Max to do it. Just notepad and MDLOps work fine for that kind of animation switch.
It's the altering of the body shape that has the most potential to get messy, but even that isn't necessarily the case if you approach it methodically.
