Not sure what your goals are but one quick way would be to delete the low res skin off your skeleton and re-bind the highress skin. Your working with a character with a skeleton I assume.

You might remap the keys to the high rez version. Look in the help files for "Map one character to another"

In ur next animation do this:
1- Put the lo res in a layer
2- Put the hi res in another layer
3- and skin them both to the bones
then animate with the lo res and n render time hide the lo and
unhide the hi.

That easy isn't it!!!!

you should be able to just bind the new skin to the animated skeleton. You will than need to copy the weighting from the low res to Hi res.
