Blender Addon: SKkeeper
Apply modifiers without losing shapekeys
This Addon automates the process of collapsing down modifiers on a mesh with shapekeys while keeping the shapekeys intact.
It works with Blender 2.8+
Operators have been coded differently enabling them to run faster and consume less memory!
How to Install:
Download the zipfile from the Releases page and install via Blenders Addon-Preferences
Edit > Preferences > Add-ons > Install... > SKkeeper.zip
How to Use:
This Addon adds 3 new operators which can be found in the 3DViews Object Menu:
you can also search for the operators via the Quick Search floater (**Hotkey: F3**) and typing "shapekey" or other keywords in the names of the operators.
Sk: Apply All Modifiers (Keep Shapekeys)
Applies all modifiers on the object
Sk: Apply Subdivision (Keep Shapekeys)
Applies only the top most subdivision modifier and keeps the others
Sk: Apply Chosen Modifiers (Keep Shapekeys)
Shows a popup with all modifiers on the object and only applies those you select.
Might lead to unexpected behaviour if you choose to apply modifiers that aren't at the top of the modifier stack
Select the Object you want to apply modifiers to and select one of the options.
