Jonah Norberg introduces you to a novel way of rendering a large number of animated characters in Unity. His method goes over putting animation-data in textures, that way the vertex shader can do all of the heavy lifting for playing animations.

Seems like the solution you linked to does bake out all frames of the animation to avoid some cost of the cpu-skinning. But not the same idea as presented above.

I tried a similar thing, but the models required were a couple hundred verts per instead, and I ended up with noticeable precision issues even when interpolating between two texture reads. It basically looked like early 90s 3D haha. Well done though!
