does anyone know of a script for an interface that has streamlined their skinning process?
currently, i skin my smooth bound models from the component editor and i find myself toggeling the component editor’s “show all columns” to keep the window clean and then go hunt for a joint i need to add weight too.
i know there is the paint weight tool but i loathe painting weights and dealing with small values spread throughout the model. I love the component editor for its straight-forwardness.
what i am looking for and may write up myself is a window similar to the component editor but that could list the bones that are currently weighted for the selected cvs and the child and parent that is directly after or before it in the heiarchy. it would also be nice to be able to disable/enable normalize weights from this window.
sound like anything out there? I have looked all over highend3d and not found anything like this but it would speed my work up dramatically. if its not out there, i might write it as an assignment for mel class. let me know if you think it would be usefull.
