Unhappy Paint weights tool. Vertex snaps to grid!


I'm new to rigging I wanted to remove weights from the coat which is influenced by the shin bone. I used "paint weights tool"(holding Ctrl).. but some of the vertex on the coat gets snapped to the grid. Don't know why this happens.

They're not actually snapping to the grid - they are jumping to the origin as they now have no controlling influence. You need to assign new influence(s) to those points - they can't be controlled by "nothing".

Question Few more questions.

Thank you so much! I'll work on that.

Please help me with this. I applied humanIK (skeleton menu -> humanIK). Snapped humanIK joints with joints in my rig. Assigned the controls of my rig to the points in the custom rig tab.

I used one of the mo-cap example as source but character is not moving. It remains in stance position.

It worked! I had to remove the rig controls from the character set that I had created.
