View Full Version : // Warning: Specified weight could not be set due to locked influences. //

Hello everybody,

I´ve stumbled over a problem, which is slowly tearing at my nerves. I´ve created a rig for a model and am currently in the process of rerigging it for better control. Means I´ve exported my weights, detached the skin from the skeleton, added some more joints to my skeleton, deleted the skins history (you never know)and the I bound the skin back to my skeleton. Now, when I want to paint my skin weights I get the following error message in my Script Editor:

"// Warning: Specified weight could not be set due to locked influences. //"

I first thought, that Hold Weights was set to "On" for my joints, but it wasn´t the case. What is going on here? I took a look at the Component Editor and I can´t set the weights manually, I can only set uninfluenced vertices form 0 to a straight 1,smoothing the weights doesn´t work at all (It just sets influenced vertices to 1)...

...any help is appreciated very much!

make sure that "hold" is off for ALL joints, not only the one you are trying to paint.
Do you use David Walden`s skinning Tools? They are really great and helpful especially
for this hold/unhold thing.

Naa, I checked that. Seems that it was the Maximum Amount of influence in the skin node. Standard setting was at 1 strangely enough. I set it to 0 and now I can continue rigging, hoooray!
