using bone limits
« on: January 02, 2008, 05:47:26 pm »

how do you use bone limits to get all the points you need to get on a human head?

the only real thing that i am having problems is getting the mouth(lower jaw) in the bone limit bubble with out the upper one.

i can do it fine with weight paint, for my purposes it must be done with bone limits.

Honestly that sounds like a very tough predicament.  I was about to suggest using weight paints.  The only other way I can think of to get around this problem would be to have the model made a certain way that the lower jaw is perhaps open therefore you can use the envelope weights more effectively to get all the points you want.
