First off: Hullo. New here. Very excited about this tool and looking to purchase. I have a new project that I'm early on and had a question. Apologies if it's stupid.
I'm wondering if I can expect to get any re-use out of animations I create with Spine? For example, I may have a boy who swings a baseball bat and a girl who swings a samurai sword (not my project but sounds kinda fun, eh?).
They have very different sprites for the characters and their held items. Can I use one 'animation' for this and just hook in the different art assets?
I'm trying to get a feel for how much re-use I can get or if it will be truly 1:1 LoE for every character in my game.
Another example, let's extend the situation above into now having full-sized adults: A man and a woman who hold similar items. Because they are a different size/scale, would I need none, one or two more animations to accommodate these new characters?
Thanks in advance.
