Rig Transfer with SY Ultra Templates: skirt doesn't follow legs

I'm working with SY Ultra Templates on a dress I modeled in Modo. The torso works great, and there are bones for the skirt, but the skirt movement isn't connected to the figure movement. Am I missing a step or doing somthing wrong?

My workflow:

  1. Open a new scene and bringin the Genesis 3 Female base model. 
  2. Import my dress.
  3. Use Transfer Utility, selecting from G3F to the dress, with the SY Tight Dress template and smoothing modifier selected.

    Skirts can not be rigged to follow the legs if you want realistic movement: in you example both the front and the back of the skirt would go back if it was following the leg, but in real life only the back of the skirt should move.

    (That's less a problem for body-tight skirts, but I'm not sure you could achieve that kind of pose in a really tight skirt anyway ^^ )

    If you want realistic poses you will need to pose the skirt manually via the custom bones.

  • Thanks. That makes sense.
