Weld to Rigged

Weld to Rigged When 2 meshes have adjacent edges, then in almost every case you may want to make sure that the vertices match perfectly. This is the case for the Skirt and the Top in the image. However, sometimes you find that the meshes behave different when posed, such that for example a gap [&hel...

Add missing Mirror Groups

Add missing Mirror Groups For each existing bone which has a Mirror symmetric bone defined (e.g. mCollarLeft – mCollarRight are mirror symmetric bones) Avastar checks if both bones of the pair have weightmaps defined and creates the maps if they do not yet exist. In the image we see weight map...

Clean Weightmaps

Clean Weight Maps This function removes unused weight maps (maps with no weights assigned or only zero values assigned) Note: In the operator Redo panel you find a few options for changing the behavior of this operator right after you called it (see below). Hint: By default the operator is only appl...

Weight Limit

> Weight Limit (too many Weights on Verts) The > Weight Limit Operator selects all vertices for which the number of assigned weights is >  a given number (4 by default). Note: this operator does not preserve the original vertex selection. So after the operator is called, only the vertices ...

Unweighted

Unweighted (Find Unweighted Vertices) The Unweighted verts Operator selects all vertices which are not assigned to any Weight Group. Note: this operator does not preserve the original vertex selection. So after the operator is called, only the unweighted vertices are selected or no vertex is selecte...

Zero Weights

Zero weights (weigth sum == 0) The Zero weighted Operator selects all vertices for which the sum of all assigned weights is 0.0 (zero). Note: this operator does not preserve the original vertex selection. So after the operator is called, only the zero weighted vertices are selected or no vertex is s...
