Hi, Im a bit confused as to the use of "Use Weight Map Only".

Without weight map, or weight map only options, bone is controlling points which are close enough to them. The closer, the more influence. Everything is dynamically assigned. With Weight Map Only, point is permanently assigned to bone(s). For speed reasons, real-time game engines use weight map only equivalent in their code (point have just one bone).
