Smile Skeleton wont stay with model



Hey pplz i hav another problem, i've been having trouble trying 2 keep my skeleton with my model. After i make the skeleton i want 2 bind it with my model, i select Skin => Bind Skin => Smooth Bind and it works great until i try 2 move a part of the model, i'll select a joint to move and its like the skeleton moves half as slow as the model and the model also streches and looks non realistic. i think the non realistic look is because i havent set any limitations on any joints but i still get the leap frog effect. in simple terms i try moving a joint and it leaps out of the model.. I've looked through the forums and through maya help but i cant find an answer (if theres somthing in the forums about this plz tell me, i've also looked through the free tutorial (Skeleton basics part 1, if any1 no's where i can get another part wich may help me plz tell) , if ANY1 out there could giv me a hand it will b much appreciated and i'll return the favour..


Cheers

Daniel

Sounds to me like Double transformation ..

Make sure your skin is NOT grouped OR parented with the skeleton, and at the same time being used as a skin ..

Outliner example :

POLYGON_SKIN
[+]Skeleton

if you need certain parts of your object to follow a bone exactly, then dont bind it as a skin, but parent the object instead.

Outliner Example:

POLYGON_SKIN
[-]Skeleton_1
[-]Skeleton_2
POLYGON_OBJECT (not bound as skin - only parented)


I hope it helps..

Press p is default tooltip, or you can go to Edit>Parent. To unparents is default P (capitol p) and you can find that right under Parent in the Edit menu.
