I know that you can give an Object a Weight Map from another object as long as the object points are the same using copy/paste/merge.

What if the point number is the same but you have changed the shape slightly in the new model?
Merging won't work as some of the points are not in the same place.

Duh.

It's the mn_DrainBGVMap one.
Thanks for the link. Works great in LW9, well that bit of the plugin anyway.

You put the object you want to have a WeightMap applied to in the forground and an object with a WeightMap in the background and simply press mn_DrainBGVMap. (For strength adjust "Max Distance). Works great.
