Re: Local Reassign

I experienced similar problems while doing this operation. I found that the trick is to set the Deformer Weight to 100% before doing the Local Reassign.

Hope this helps

also, if you work in aproximation mod, you can't reassign weights... This might also be the problem....

Not the deformer weight

I've had this issue many times in the past and thought I had licked it with selecting the bones individually, but it turns out that that is not the instant fix I thought it would be.
I'm not weighting a character and experience the exact issue. I select points, I click Local Reassign, or the Reassign button in the Weight Editor and poof! Nothing happens.
No weights are assigned.

I've tried setting the Deformer Weight to 100% and tried Local Reassigning with various options selected, plus I've skimmed the Options menues many times but to no avail.
The odd part is that I've had this issue in a scene with one mesh while others in the same scene will weight perfectly fine.

I have tried many 'workarounds' such as Extracting the polys, exporting the mesh and reimporting it to a new scene, etc...
I think the only thing I haven't tried is Voodoo...
[whips out the doll]

Well I don't know if it was the Voodoo or the chanting, but mysteriously enough, the model started recognizing Local Reassignment.
I kid you not, it just DECIDED that it knew what Local Reassign was.
Half an hour ago... nothing...
Now, perfectly normal...
