Question Weird Paint Weight Issue?

I've recently rigged and skinned a character but I seem to be having problems with the Paint Weight Tool. All of my weights seem to work fine except for the one leg. Every time I rotate the hip joint it seems to leave some geometry be hide. I've check the weight colors and I can't see any problems. Any ideas what this problem could be?

Sellect the verts that have this problem.

Go to your component editor, and see what inputs its having.

It looks like other bones on the other side are sharing weights.

You can set it to 0 in your component editor, or just paint your influenced verts to 100% on the knee, and then redistribute to the leg.
