Default rig unbound from skin problem i think

hey guys,

I'm having a small problem with a model for a uni assignment of mine. I've been given a rig to animate. I created a whole bunch of blendshapes for the facial expressions I'll use.

I've run into bit of a problem. Somehow my characters skin has come apart from its skeleton. I have no idea how to fix it. I've tried detaching it then re-attaching it - that doesnt work.

I'm open to trying any ideas that anyone has. Thanks in advance for any help!

Ok well after some fiddling i decided to import my blendshapes into a previously saved version where it doesnt stuff up, re target them and everything works fine! Strange that. Would love to know what could have possibly have gone wrong.

At a guess you had the blendShape node after the skinCluster node in history?

When making blendshapes for a rig, the blendshape node must be before the skinCluster node in history or else it will remove the deformation from the joints, which sounds like the problem you had.

If this was your problem, make sure when you make a blendShape node that the Deformation order (found in the advanced tab) is set to `front of chain`.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your help.

Richard,

I checked what you said and that was the case. Thanks for explaining what could have caused it. I now know what to look out for in the future.


Thanks again,

stacey
