View Full Version : paint shape key weights ?

11 November 2008, 12:08 AM
How do I use weightmaps so that I can set the influence of a shape key based on weight maps ?

I am asking for guidance in setting up my shape keys and the weight maps so that the weightmaps influence how much of a given shapekey affect's my mesh.

Should be pretty straightforward ( like many things in XSI ) but I feeling lazzzeee.

in the shape menu there's a command called "modulate shape with weightmap". Doesn't get much more obvious than that really :)
The shape maps you can find under the shapes' cluster, the weightmap wherever you put it.

Lazyness to the point of not being able to click the shape menu and look into it when you're looking for a shape related tool might be a tad excessive though :p

heh ! Thanks and thanks for pointing out the obvious ( the lazy part I mean ).
