hey Ive come across a problem, Im painting the weight of my character but I can only shift all the weight from one joint to another, as in if I want to paint .5 of the weith from one joint to another so they both move the area. it will move ALL the weight.

My max influence is 1 and my dropoff rate is 4

thanks chris

Lock the weight of all joints

Goto Skin>> Edin smooth Skin >> set max influence... and set it to 4.

The max influence tell maya how many joints can have weight on 1 vertex. So when your Max influence is 1 only one joint can have weight on 1 vertex that's why you cant smooth it between few joints.

You have to lock the weight before changing the max influence because if you paint weight before that, it will scatter..
