Skinning crashing in scene mode
« on: April 14, 2014, 09:29:36 pm »

I have been unable to get skinning to work in Scene mode.  In my normal model, if I turn on "Enable Skinning", by double clicking in Figure mode. Then go to Scene it crashes.  In the simpler test I attached, it oddly doesn't crash as soon as go to Scene mode with skinning on, but then if go back to figure it crashes.   Something seems broken with skin mode.

After reading the help, looks like the issue was assigning multiple objects to different bones.  I guess the real issue is crashing, instead of probably getting an error box or not letting do that in first place.  And I guess a second thing, is, probably intentional but can't assign objects to root node (instead need a 0 length bone attached to root).  It might be intentional.

Crashes are bad. Must Get Rid Of Crashes! :)  Yes, you can't attach objects to the root bone.
