    Human Male deformation is off

    I have LW 2018 and have been using LW for scientific stills for several years. But, this is the first time I've worked with a human model and rigging. I have a genoma-rigged model and I just want to put the arms down to the side. But, when I did it for the left arm, the deformation is too much in the side of the chest. Would a weight map fix this?

    Thanks,

    Rod

    Yes, weight mapping the model would help, though you could add hold bones in area like the chest and such to control deformations.

    If you use weight maps, at a minimum, you'll need Torso, Neck, Head, Rt/Lt Upper and lower arms, Rt/Lt Hands, One for each finger, Rt/Lt Upper and Lower Legs, and Rt/Lt Feet. You'll want to blend them together where they meet. Then, you'll want to assign them to the bones.
