Hi I’m new to weight painting and losing my mind.
All the tutorials I watch say to do auto weights, but on my model auto weight painting put a bunch of weights in the wrong spots. This I wouldn’t think would be a huge issue, but the model distorts a lot when I try to manually remove the weights in the area I didn’t want to put it in. The mesh ends up distorting so bad I cant paint on it anymore. Is there another option? Can I have it not auto paint weights? It would be a lot easier to have a blank slate where I paint the weights myself and the program doesn’t try to guess what I want. I managed to completely remove the incorrect weights off of some parts of the body and that seems to fix the distortion, but other areas the distortion is so bad I cant fix it.
Also, why is the brush not working half the time I click to paint? The more distorted an area is the less likely it is to paint on that area, with smooth areas working the most consistently, although sometimes even then it will not paint. I have to click and move the mouse around like crazy to make any progress in certain areas.
