Hi all
Is it possible to drive a weightmap with an image sequence? I know the plug 'Image to Weightmap' from Helge, its really cool. I m looking for something like that , but for more than one image.
Or is it possible to drive the values of a weightmap by an object? Maybe a sphere? So that everywhere the sphere intersect with my object the value is 1 ? Maybe with a fall off?
thx
mick

Which version of XSI are you using? As of v5.0, you can connect images and sequences to just about anywhere you used to be able to connect weight maps (veretwx colours too). Look up "parameter maps" in the docs.

As for driving a weight map by an object, La Maison has released a bunch of useful weight map tools and it looks like Proximity Map might fit your needs: http://www.alamaison.fr/3d/lmWeightMapTools/index.html.
