to lattice or not to lattice

right now im rigging my charcter for animation and i finally reached the skinning part. i chose to do rigid bind. could anyone plaese tell me what parts of the body are better to create a lattice and which parts are better to bind straight to the skeleton?

Last time I did a rigid bind I just went for binding the whole thing. But after setting up some flexors and weighting it I wish I had used a lattice around the shoulders and hips. I liked the way the elbows and knees worked with the flexors. Keep us updated on how it comes out

You need to spread out the influence in those areas. Rigid bind will give you a sharp crease, flexors help even it out a lil, but lattices give the most control over the falloff.

Overall rigid binding was way easier to get the results i wanted than smoothbinding. It was prolly best because i bound the proxy (which smoothed stuff out when it deformed the final mesh)
