I am a very experienced Blender user, so I know my way around, but everytime I auto weight paint a mesh with an armature, I have this maddening problem…sometimes auto weight painting works, and sometimes it doesnt. I cannot figure out what I do wrong, but I go through the steps 4 or 5 times, and it doesn’t automatically assign weights to bones.
Then, for some reason, I do it right, BUT I DONT KNOW WHY!
I know the principles of it, have done it before, but EVERYTIME i make a rig and then attach it the mesh, then autoweight paint it, I do this over and over…
does anyone know what I am talking about?
