View Full Version : Vertexpaint bug or just my mistake?

Ok, this is what I have done and encountered. Maybe it's a Mac problem, but I don't know for sure.

-I have NO weights or Maps at all on my model

-I go into Vertex Paint, to paint the weights with each bone,

-But I do NOT let vertexpaint calculate the weights automatically.

-Instead, I start painting right away bone by bone by bone

-I save, and close vertex paint

- There is not a single weight in my model!!! If I open vertexpaint again, I have to start over again!

Should I CALCULATE automatically in order to save the weights afterwards? Or are the names for the weightmaps only given when you do a calculation? and is that why I can't save them?

I'm going nuts around here.

Never had problems with this before!

You may ask why I do not simply press calculate? Well I hate to correct all the mistakes this auto-function makes. Especially with the fingers of my model. any tips for this one?

Did you click 'Yes' to save to Vmaps when you quit vertex paint?
I'll assume you did :)

Well it works okay for me, but I am on the PC.

Try saving them manually with the file menu in vertex paint if that doesn't work.

Love your sig :)

Now that you mention it, it didn't ask me at all if I wanted to save the vmaps!!

weird.. but I noticed now that it does when I do an automated calculation first.

But maybe I should save it from the menu.

Thanx a lot!
