Is there a plugin that converts surfaces or parts into weightmap percentages?

There is logical problem here. Weight map is stored in points, but surfaces/parts are in polygons.

Basically what to do when point is in belonging to polygons where there are 2, 3 or more surfaces/parts used.. ?!

Not weld polygons are not problem- just one surface/part is used by point, but in smooth complex model, multiple surfaces/parts are used by single point..

If you find a way to get surface/part identifier/index in Node Editor, you will be able to bake image using Surface Baking Camera, or TrueArt's Batch Baking Camera, then convert to weight maps using Gradient node in VMapProcessor.
But still- this must be done with unweld geometry..
