Lower framerate of animations to save cpu cycles?

    i’ve seem in Dead Rising (xbox) with scenes with many zombies that the ones in the back animate with a lower framerate. How is that done in Unity?

    I want my game to run in 60 fps to ensure smooth panning/zooming in mobile but the characters are pretty small and probably would look just as fine in a lower frame rate.

    Ideally I could change this per character, so when zoomed out when many are shown, i have a low frame rate with low LOD and zoomed in it’s fewer characters with higher frame rate.

    Let me know what you think!

    Isn’t this interesting to anyone? With 100s of animated characters on screen the performance can really suffer, would be great to know how to do this..
