Skin and biped not aligned
show user profile  3joez
My model is controlled by a rig (biped).

Stack on the model is:

skin
editable poly (the model)

I think I moved somehow the biped and now, whenever i click on edit poly to tweak the mesh, the model shifts to the left.
Pivot are misaligned when it happens, i tried to center them, but problem remains.
I want the skin to stay where the model is.
I solved it putting an edit poly at the top of the stack and the collapsing it to the one below, but I want to fix the misalign problem.

go to skin modifier advanced settings, turn always transform off and make sure you are in the reference frame (0 by default), align ur stuff (setting x position to 0 on bip base/model should do it), turn always transform back on

Stabby, thank you. You seem to know everything. How long have you been practicing 3d? Just, curious, quite a bunch of people here seem to have a solid background. I'm very happy to have joined this forum.
