option: Extra display settings

  • I prefer to also change the Bone Display Style to:
  • X-Ray
  • disable shapes,
  • disable Limits indicator
  • enable Stick Display Style
  • Use the blue SL Base bones to pose, and the red Collision Volume bones to paint weight onto.
  • To update the weights while you’re painting, press alt-q to see changes to the mesh after you paint weight.
