I am trying to parent a mesh to an armature (following an online tutorial). The top picture is before I parent the mesh, the bottom picture is after I parent the mesh.
The steps I took to parent the mesh:
- Select the all the bones in Pose Mode
- Select the mesh, which takes me to Object Mode.
- Shift select the armature.
- Ctr + P, select Armature Deform with Automatic Weights/Empty Groups (both options gave the same resulting deformation.
In the tutorial, when the guy did the same steps his mesh did not deform like mine did. What did I do wrong?
