Dragging Problem with Model and New to Maya


#1

Hey, guys! I’m very new here and a bit new to Maya (I’ve taken two classes and have been using YouTube to further my learning), but I was hoping that y’all might be able to help. I have a male and female model that I have learned to rig up, but for some reason when I move them away from the origin, they both seem to do this sort of dragging thing with the points around the hips. Do y’all know how to fix this?

HI nishook.

I think the reason for that is your mesh is not fully weighted. That is not all points have a total value of 1 in terms of skinning.
Try to check the vertex’s value through component editor.
