View Full Version : Set Envelope doesn't work

10 October 2002, 05:59 PM

i pick on the body (skin/ object), go to the animate menu and choose envelope>set envelope, pick the skeleton/ rig and right-click with the mouse in the viewport. when i move the effectors it's not assigned to the object.

First, RTFM, I hear thats a good place to start. ;)

You had everything right, except that when it comes time to pick the skeleton...pick every bone that you want you mesh to be weighted to. Then right click.

That should work.

Yeah....thats right......but pick the bones only
not the effecters and roots

and put them in a group to make picking them in the future easier.
