Good Deformation!

By | September 26, 2016

I’m pleased with this, especially since its such an extreme pose. Once I recognized the complete lack of philosophy governing the Paint Weights tool, it went much smoother.

Here’s how to use Paint Weights:

  • Make sure you have Paint Blend Weights selected and strength dialed up to 1
  • Select a bone, paint over some verticies
  • Does it look better?
  • No -> stop and select a different bone, repeat the previous steps
  • Yes -> keep doing that until there’s NDE, repeat the previous steps

Pro tip: to really speed up the process, narrow your bone selection to just what’s available in the Weight Tool window.

In next week’s Tutorial Tuesday, I’ll link to a more substantive Paint Weights tutorial.
