I made a basic TABS model for my first model and wanted to rig it. I followed many tutorials but no matter what I do the character won't move with the rig. Where only 2 instances where it did work (kinda)

  1. if I turn on bone envelopes which isn't really a solution
  2. when I scale up the character and rig and then add automatic weights which will for some reason lead to the character also shrinking for some reason it srinks the model

I tried redoing the rig, making a rig using rigify etc.nothing seemed to workenter image description here

here is the blender file https://drive.google.com/file/d/1U2zm3tueuc1XkO41nGONfsaoOorvZrax/view?usp=sharing

Apply the scale of both the two objects, parent With Automatic Weight, it works:

  • $\begingroup$ sorry but I still don't understand when i try to parent the rig, "automatic weights doesn't pop up $\endgroup$ Nov 7, 2021 at 17:07
  • $\begingroup$ How exactly do I do that sorry for being a bother but I'm pretty new to blender $\endgroup$ Nov 7, 2021 at 17:15
  • $\begingroup$ Select your character, press Ctrl A and apply the scale, do the same thing for the armature. Now select the character, shift select the armature, press Ctrl P and choose the With Automatic Weight option $\endgroup$
