I need to make a copy of a character in my plugin.
But when I use the method
character2 = character1->GetClone(COPYFLAGS_0, 0);
the character2's skin is influenced by the character1's skeleton!

Does anyone know how to get a complete copy of a character like it is done with Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V in the editor (so that the copied skin is influenced by the copied skeleton) ?

You'll need to allocate, init, and use an AliasTrans so that all of the links in the clone point to the clone and not the original.

Example from the docs:

AutoAlloc<AliasTrans> aliastrans;  
if (!aliastrans || !aliastrans->Init(document)) return FALSE;  
dup = op->GetClone(COPYFLAGS_0, aliastrans);  
if (!dup) return FALSE;

It was so obvious! I should have tried this. I am so ashamed of myself now.

Thanks !
