Hooks and vertex groups???

Should vertex group weighting work with hooks in 2.37a?

In my experiment, it seems possible to use vertex groups as a simple way of adding vertices to a hook but if I change the weight on one group, it changes for all groups - but doesn’t seem to make any difference to anything.

Should/do weights work with hooks and if so, can someone post or point me to info on how to make it happen?

No, weighypainting doesn’t work. You need to select the Object with the Vertex Group and go to F7. Falloff adjusts the distance from the empty that’ll be hooked and Force is the “magnetism” of the hooks Empty.


Thanks. Bummer.

Oh well. As it turns out, I don’t even have a firm grip on weighting as it applies to armatures. Thought I understood it, but it sure doesn’t seem to be doing what I want, so back to the docs. :-?
