Hello all, thanks for reading this....

I am currently Painting Weights on a character and there is one little area that when I try to paint it says "SPECIFIED WEIGHT COULD NOT BE SET DUE TO LOCKED INFLUENCES"..

Can someone please help me figure out how to "UNLOCK INFLUENCES"

Thank you...

Moved to the correct forum... :thumbsup:

As for your issue, in the paint skin weights dialog box, move down the list and see what bones/influences have (hold) written right next to them. Select the joint in the list and click "Toggle Hold Weights On Selected".

That should fix your problem.
