View Full Version : Import/Export Skin Weights... Really...

03 March 2006, 11:11 PM

I'm really new to character rigging in Maya and have run into a few problems. Has anyone here succesfully exported and imported skin weights with the default maya Edit Smooth Skin -> Export/Import skin weights?

I tried this, but when I imported the weightmap, vertices were flying all over the freakin place.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.. or maybe point me in the direction of a script that does a better job? Thanks.

Update: found a good script that does the job.

There are several different scripts for this as the built in one is very poor and always had issues. Have a look at, I think that is where I got the ones that I was using. I don't remember what it's name is though.
