Rigging a bow with bones
show user profile  Nyx
Hello ,
I'm currently following this tutorial
and the mesh of my bow don't seem to be following the bone structure and I don't understand why. Here is a screenshot:
If you need the max file to help you better understand my problem let me know. I'm a newbie in 3ds so please let me know if you need any additional info.

Your photo doesn't tell me a whole lot. Nice owl though. Post up a photo of your viewport or a photo that properly shows the issue.

Embed your images in the post in future it just makes it easier for everybody - find the image url and simply paste it into your post ( without any img tags or anything ) and it`ll appear on the page.

As to your question - it looks as if your weighting has went wrong. I would suggest going over the tutorial again step by step. It can be fidgety doing weighting but once you know the process it`s pretty easy..

Nice tutorial btw i never read through it but looks interesting.

[edit] Sorry Herfst! :)

Ok so I reseted all the weight to 0 but I noticed my bones are not moving the way I want them to move : Hebergeur d'image
The first bone near the handle shouldn't move at all since the handle is rigid and then when I pull the string bone on the X axis all the bones line up instead of 'curving'. Is that something I could fix painting weight or do I have to setup my bones first?
