Title: Weighting tool suggestion
Post by: Zileris on May 05, 2017, 06:20:17 pm
A tool to select the vertices, expand or subtract from the selection, select a bone, and apply a weight value directly. Or being able to select a set of vertices and have the weight paint brush only affect the selection

What this solves: Problems painting weights on overlapping or very close/dense areas of a model.

This would be fine for lower poly stuff, but higher poly might need a more elegant solution. One things for sure though, anim8or could really use better rigging tools.

You seem to be having Fun!!...... its not easy to weight paint anything in Anim8or, but gives you a good grounding when you migrate to other programs ie: ( Carrara.... weight painting uses 3d brush and is semi automatic when you add a sketeton so there is minimal painting!!)
But here`s some little tips that I use:
 
1:find a bone that does not have any movement then paint the whole model with that colour, then start on each individual joint.

2: also try using wireframe mode when doing intricate stuff you can see what missed and what needs painting

3: uncheck your skeleton during your painting process to see where you have overpainted.

Hope this helps. did you get to see the video ??
