View Full Version : Weight map - how do I delete/manage them?

05-17-2013, 12:55 PM
I was applying weight map to a right arm/hand/fingers and then I realized I was working with symmetry on! How do I remove the weight maps on the left side?
I created new weight maps for the left side but when I select the weight map on the right side, it still select both sides.

I'm working with version 11.5

Easy. Have a panel open in Wt shaded mode helps. Select the geometry that has the map you don't want & hide the rest. Now go to Maps tab, select Clear Map and make sure the one you want to clear is chosen and OK. It only clears from the selected geometry. Unhide and confirm your maps are correct. Rinse & repeat as needed.

There are tools & scripts avail for mirroring maps across symmetric mesh with renaming options at the same time, etc. so you might be able to save a step or two, although the above should only take a minute or so.
