problem loading skin envelopes
show user profile  draws4money
I have completed a female character, and skinned her to a biped. I have a male character with almost identical mesh and want to apply the female character's skin settings to him, so I don't have to redo all of the settings. I selected the female mesh, Skin modifier/ advanced parameters/ save/ "envelope #1.env". I then opened my male character file, applied a skin modifier, selected appropriate bones from identical biped / advanced parameters / load/ and loaded "envelope #1.env". I clicked "OK" on the "Load Envelope" panel, and it did not work. I am probably missing something in the load envelope panel, but have no idea what to do with it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I could be completely wrong here but I think you need to order the two lists in the same ...order. the top envelope on tyhe left gets given the top envelope on the right .etc

...i think.

I could also be wrong... but if you're just hitting"OK" without doing anything... then it won't do anything. Hit the "Match by Name" button and then click OK

I tried both suggestions (and several variations of both suggestions) and still had no luck. Thanks though. If anyone else has any more ideas, I'd love to hear them.
