as i remeber from the last time i weighted in maya 5 when I finish the skeleton and bind the it i go to paint weight tool, and when i choose my geometry and press the paint weight tool the weights appear in grays , but , it don't here..actually i removed my prefencese and maya created a new one and the same happend the weights don't show up.even in simple scenes just 2 cubes , there's once when they appeared when I opened my file , the weights didn't appear , i can change them although.
and, yes, the show colour options is checked on in display layout in paint weights tool.
i searched in the forums before i post.:)
