Model seperates when moving!
on Apr 6, 2009 at 8:11:11 pm

Hi there, I'm pretty new to Maya and having a few problems - hopefully someone can shed some light on this one for me!

I've created a polygon model of a man, built a skeleton rig and smooth skinned the model to it. I've also used paint effects to paint on the model.

I've then created a simple master manipulator, and parented all the elements to it. The idea being that when I move the manipulator everything follows - however, everything seems to move at a different rate! The paint effects float off the polygon surface and the skeleton rig drifts out of the body. Its driving me mad and I have no idea why this is happening!

I've tried grouping the elements together - but then strange things happen there also - the skeleton will twist and distort the model etc.

If anyone can help me out I'll be extremely greatful. Thanks.
