I have been informed when I create bones or use an existing skeleton, attatch and weightpaint it on another forum, I am boning or skinning, not rigging?
the first sounds rude :red:
the second, sick and cruel :snake:
hence my use of the third term ;-P
is there an industry standard terminology or is the other poster talking out of his arse? :vampire:

    EVERY conversation with this particular poster involves him talking out of his backside. ;-)

    hya Wendy oh it's just semantics and the purpose of language isto get the message across. Look at this way: if you were a mesh would you rather be boned, skinned or rigged? I know which one I'd pick :)
