ShowUnmappedWeights is LightWave ® Modeler plugin to show in viewports which vertexes have not been mapped.

Unmapped vertexes could cause problems during rigging, exporting to 3rd party game engines or other 3D applications.

Manual searching for unmapped vertexes in thousands or millions polygons mesh, could be really frustating and unpleasant job.

To use this plugin just add it using Add Plug-Ins, restart Modeler, assign key to ShowUnmappedWeights and press it when needed to activate and once again to disactivate. Pretty similar to how Sub-Patch works.

It's advised to download videos to disk using Save File As... and watch in off-line movie player.

Installing the product

In order to install the program, please extract the archive to some location on your hard disk.

On Windows ®, the archive is in the ZIP format. You will need 3rd party software such as WinZIP, which you can download from http://www.winzip.com (it's not included in the package), or other compatible software to decompress the archive.

Windows XP ® has built-in ZIP support (simply right click on the archive’s icon, and choose ‘Extract all files...’).

On Macintosh ®, the archive is in the SIT format. You will need 3rd party software such as StuffIt, which you can download from http://www.stuffit.com (it's not included in the package), or compatible software to decompress the archive.

The LightWave ® plugin does not require files to be in specific locations, which is a very nice feature. But for easier file management it is recommended that the plugin files (i.e. those with .p extension) be copied to your LightWave ® plugins folder (f.e. LightWave\Plugins\).
