In Reply to: lightwave bones problem posted by Jude on February 05, 1998 at 20:52:58:
: Whenever I activate a bone in lightwave it immediately
: distorts the shape of the area I have assigned it to
: influence. When I rotate the bones vertices that should
: move are left behind others move and I'm left with a twisted mess.
: Any ideas what's going wrong?
: Also would it be better when using lightwave and creating
: a player and weapon model to create them as two seperate objects
: and animate them in the same scene or as one object. If you
: were to create them as one object how would you go about seperating
: them for the player.md2 and weapon.md2?
Not sure if this is your problem but if you *rest* a child bone
before its parentbone, youŽll get some distortions.
In otherwords its wise to place the bones first and *rest* them
starting with parent bone.
About the weapon...IŽd animate both in one sequence and split
them afterwards - youŽll get an exact position of the gun
