I am trying to weight paint my model. To make things easier I have already hidden most of my character. However no matter what I do, the face mesh always unhides itself when I enter weight paint mode. I have most of my character parts divided into vertex groups, though I cant see how could that affect just the face to unhide itself.

I also tried selecting the face in weight paint mode with paint mask option selected and hide it this way. This does work, but as soon as I go to paint over the mesh the face reappears again.

Not sure if I am doing something wrong or if this is a bug.

  • $\begingroup$ Yup its a bug. I installed Blender 2.82 and it works perfectly there. I guess I will be doing my weight painting there and then switch to the newer one later on. $\endgroup$ Aug 27 '21 at 12:09
