Hi,

This is the same scene I used to pose the Brit Chick renders for the Finished Work Forum:

Has anyone experienced the same problem with LW[8]. If anyone has any ideas about how I can fix this problem, please help.

Best Wishes

There can be lots of things...

First try to reaload on a fresh opened Layout. sometimes strange things like this happened on loading...a bug I think.

If it not works, try to see if weights maps are normalised. Then check if all active bones that have "use weight map only" enable have a weights maps. If they don't have a weight map, disable them.

An other thing can be the "reset bone position" and "record pivot". If they have been used accidentaly it can crash your rig but if it is this you need to restart your rig from 0...

Hi jeanphi,

Thankyou so much for the fast responce.

I thought I was going to have to re rig the character, when suddenly, the problem just went away. So so strange.


Thanx again.

Best Wishes
