View Full Version : Ghostly weight map...

:ohmy: I have arm bones on one side that are affecting the chest of a character. The other side works fine. I have remapped everything, I have rebuilt the arm, I have rebuilt the chest area. I think it's got to be some sort of hidden polygon that has no weight map on it, but I can't find it. Does anyone have any advice? Is there plugin that can trace something like this?

Thank you in advance.

Either youve got some weight value for the arm map itself on the chest area... select the chest polys, select the arm map, clear map... or, more likely... youve got a bone with its weight set to none on the misbehaving side.

Show Weights from TrueArt's Modeling Pack
allows seeing weight values in Modeler viewports.

If vertex has no value visible in viewport it means vertex has not vmap.
It's different case than having weight map equal 0.0!

See video of tool f.e. here

RebilHill I've tried clearing the maps and checked all the bones, but it's got a lot of bones, maybe I missed something.

Sensei, looks interesting, but out of my price range right now.
