    Question

    Is there a trick to skinning or is it all 100% trial & error?
    Just checking since everything I've read seems to point in the direction of trial & error with a couple of tricks thrown in..

    Mhhh... i want to know what do you mean by skinning.
    Maybe texturing is the exact term?

    mmmh... in that case, there are different texturing techs depending on which kind of models you use, if they are polygonal you must check UVs and UV maps... and if they are Nurbs, it´s not that easy, since you need to rebuild the surfaces, which helps you making the spans` distance uniform, and even then, your image must match the best possible..

    May or may not be of some help, not a tutorial per se but some ideas to check into.. http://www.highend3d.com/boards/show...lapsed&sb=5&o=

    Have not done much rigging but I always had better luck with component editor than using paint skin weights. Also the topology of your surfaces is very important for good deformation.
