Hi,

I'm fairly new to Lightwave. I purchased a learning CD from Class On Demand called Character Builder. I've learned a lot so far. Anyhow, I've reached a point that I can't get beyond. I've rigged a skeleton and now I must set the Bone Weights. Unfortunately, whenever I click OK on the dialog box, it crashes Lightwave. The image below illustrates my problem. Now, I have tried (as a test) to create a simple arm on a new document...nothing but the skeleton. When I attempt to apply Bone Weights on this, it works...meaning it doesn't crash. So, my question is: what could be the problem with my skeleton that causes this? Is this common? Any pointers or suggestions?

Your expertise is appreciated.
Dan

I'd bet real money that somewhere you have a 1 vertex skelegon. I've been nailed by this myself several times.
