For a little bit now I’ve been working on a model and I’ve gotten to the stage where I want to apply an armature to them. So I did the whole “Automatic weights” part and was underway to touch up the weight paint. But no matter what I do in weight painting mode, nothing shows up. I can’t see the weight on anything.
I’ve watched all of the tutorials on how to weight paint in 2.8 and they all say the same thing: Just Click Armature, Shift-click mesh, Go to weight paint mode. Simple. But when I get there, there’s no colour for me to determine the weight.
According to the tutorials, this would be the part where I’d be able to do everything but there are no tools. I select to “Draw” option, try to paint and nothing happens. Which actually leads me to another question…
Am I missing a part of my layout for this to work? In the tutorial videos I’ve watched they all have the same layout, an extra box below the header which shows the tools and options for them. I, on the other hand, don’t have this nor do I know if there’s an option for it.
Is this a bug? I really hope it isn’t and that I’m just missing something because I really want to finish this model but I’m getting so frustrated over this little hitch.
