Tips: Transfer skin weights (by rampa)

Transfer the weights as normal. Don't delete any groups.
Now select your skeleton and set it to pose mode, then select the armor again (it's still in weight paint mode).
Cntrl-Click on the head bone to select it. You'll see the weighting like your image showed.
In the tools panel, click on "Levels", and set the "Gain" value to zero.

That is a great introduction to making clothes in Blender and you made it look very easy. I hope you will do a few more designs and one where you bring it into CC.


Thanks!

oh thanks for this I wont have to poke around myself for a change LOL.  I will be using blender and making cool things for my strange slapstick comedy videos of doom.     Opening up the CC like this means there are endless possibilities and I thank RL for doing this its just like a dream to me that all this is possible now.

 I am like a kid in a candy store.

Love the tutorials, but I crash or get a 'Failed to load file' error. Been at this for many hours, across several 3D apps, and I get the same problem. I think the clothes / accessories development pipeline needs some polishing before the rest of us can dig in.

Keep up the good work!

hi Mythcons,

during my Blender works there were 2 main reasons for crashes and load errors.
1. Export settings in Blender

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/f9b97c62-2729-445b-a061-82fb.png

Don't forget to uncheck Add leafe Bones. Under the Main tab export only Empty, Mesh and Armature.

2. A missing UVMap. Open the UV editing window. Select all faces in edit mode, to control this.

Have a nice day

So some of you might not know how to see your textures in Blender. This little video will help with that! Smile
