show user profile  Silentrizz

Rigging isnt as simple as placing bones and a skin modifier. The weighting of the vertices is very important. And besides that you wont get a good skin on an elbow without then using a 'skinmorph' mod after it correct was deformations the skin mod will force the mesh to do.

Could you point me in the right way to learn more about weight distribution and skin morphs? Thanks for your help guys.

I always use it.

Wish it were compatible with FBX (or Motionbuilder).
Have to use the skin export in BonesPro and it ain't always "clean".
