I’ve done more thong weightpainting for the past two days…
I thought I was more or less done with the thong but it turns out that I forgot the mapping to account for the belly slider.
If that wasn’t enough, I did not properly test the deformations when both legs are bent (sitting) and it really really looks bad… I am not sure how I’m going to fix it because it looks like that due to the limit of 4 weights per vertex, and to fix this I have to add left and right leg weight on the centerline, which is already affected by the pelvis, torso, and the PELVIS deform bone: That’s 5 weight groups with the legs.
I MIGHT be able to get rid of most of the vertices on that center line but not all of them because the little piece of fabric is triangular.
I haven’t transferred the side ties to the “strap” version yet, but that’s not really an issue, once it all works with the thong, it will work for the “strap” too.
