I just tried to use the attribute node to reference vertex group weights…
after much confusion i discovered that weights are not supported. a shame as that would be ideal for my project.
I thought that vertex colours would be the answer and they can indeed be used via the attribute node!
but sadly there’s a hard coded limit so you can only have 8 vertex colour sets… i need a lot more than that to blend what i need (like 30 or so)
i can get a little closer by painting rgb seperately but still not enough and much harder to see what’s going on!
is anyone working on weight map support in cycles nodes? it’s a real stumbling block!
