View Full Version : Skelegon help plz...

12-18-2007, 02:21 PM

I have used bones before for small stuff but now i plan on making a robot move, I have modeled the robot and I am now ready to animate it. I was told that skelegons are great for what I am doing and I can skip IE for now.

Sooooo... My problem is this. I added all the skelegons I need in Modeler and I tried to test it so I added a weight map on the head and moved the object to layout I converted the skelegons to bones and activated them but they don't work.

What did I miss? or did I do something wrong?

Make sure the skelegons are on the same layer as the object and that Enable IK and Enable Deform is turned on.

All the skelegons are on the same layer as the part i want to move, and yes IK and deform are clicked... but they still do not want to move. The best way to put it is, When I covert to bones and attempt to move something the bones move with out the rest of the object :'(
