Care to provide screenshots of your actual comp and timeline? Interpreting the errors it seems that you are working on too small areas and the effect can't calculate the deformation mesh.
here is a screen shot of the character I am rigging
So I want to add 3 pins to the arms with wings.
I do not understand
Hard to judge, since you downsized, but I coulds see two potential issues here:
- the area being too small as I already mentioned, thus potentially not meeting some minimum spacing requirement for the pins
- your wing's indentations not being clean and having some odd "loops" that would result in an illogical mesh
I'd definitely check those things...
hum .... not to sure what you mean by "wing's indentations not being clean"
FOr the first point, the file size is 2000 by 2000 so the illustration was big enought .
However I followed your advice about the mesh and just clicked the show option boxs off,
and it worked .
interesting, if unexpected... Well, whatever works, works...
