    Best way to fold and unfold an object?

    Say you have a simple(r) origami animation and want it to not only fold up but then unfold from a different "root" spot. What would you use to do that?

    Right now I'm just going to go from one unfolded model to a new copy of that with a different rig, but I'm wondering if there is a better way?

    Thanks,
    Gideon

    Here is something similar to what I'm working on...though the one I'm working on is more complex...

    Use some bones in one version to fold it to a certain point. Use save transformed to get a new object that you can then setup and fold some more. You might try saving each version out as mdd files.
