need help skinning
« on: September 14, 2010, 09:20:34 pm »

I'm trying to skin my object using weights, but i'm having trouble with it.  I keep getting the message that says "the bone must be a descendent of the bone the object is attatched to" or something, and the only way i'll be able to do it is if I can attach the object to the root bone, but it won't let me do that either. can someone help me out?

man ur really having a lot of trouble with errors lately. basically everything comes off of that root bone. u can think of the root as a base. the way kreator explains it is the best way to do it because u can move your model up and down and left and right. it will some hop in its step. i had some trouble reading gypers pics cause they were so big btu i think he explained it right.

there are some other obstacles when using weight painting. i havent really figrued it out yet but u should know that the strength of your brush does matter. so for your joints they should be set lower so they dont move as much. i hope u figure it out soon im getting into animation again too.

ok, i'll fully explain my problem.  my horse's body is all one object completely, and i'm having trouble with it because of the child thing, and I can't attach an object to the root bone.  I tried to just paint the top where the bones are children, but the color won't change.

Anyone have a suggestion on how to do my weight paining so it doesn't paint through the whole figure? is there a setting? if not, someone should request it

Nope! You have to rotate it. I think maybe it's difficult because of the code to do such. Figuered out about skinning?
