I want to remove weights by painting 0% weight.

However, I'm having a hard time doing this.

Here is a video that shows how I desperately try to paint an area black. I have to try it again and again until finally something happens:


These are my brush settings:

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots That is what I want, but it does not really work. In the video you see how I desperately go over the blue areas again and again, and they still stay blue. $\endgroup$ – tmighty Jun 13 at 20:26

The falloff seems to be the important factor here:

Once I sat it to the bridge-like preset, it worked fine.

  • $\begingroup$ it looks like you're right, so what was the problem? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 14 at 0:19
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots The falloff shape was "wrong" for my project / geometry, I would say. $\endgroup$ – tmighty Jun 14 at 0:31
  • $\begingroup$ mmh Ok, I thought Mix with a Weight of 0 equaled Subtract with a Weight of 1, so maybe to always make sure you're deleting, switch to Subtract $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 14 at 1:24
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots Where is Subtract to be found? $\endgroup$ – tmighty Jun 15 at 20:21
  • $\begingroup$ in your 3D view > panel the right panel with N > Tool > Brush > Blend > Subtract $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jun 16 at 0:55
