I have been following three or four quadraped tutorials on youtube. In pose mode whenever I move the leg and the IK on my cat it deforms and bulges really badly how can I fix this?

  • $\begingroup$ Without testing the mesh myself, my guess would be that the weight painting is off, and the bones wind up not controlling the right vertices. $\endgroup$ – Gliderman Aug 21 '16 at 20:32
  • $\begingroup$ I can get into weight painting mode but I can't seem to go through selecting the different bones. It just stays with a brush and paints weights for one bone $\endgroup$ – Dave Goateze Aug 21 '16 at 20:40
  • $\begingroup$ So the mesh is in weight paint mode, and the bones are in pose mode, right? You probably need to put the bones in pose mode first, and then go to weight paint mode on the mesh. Then you should be able to right-click on the different bones to switch to their vertex groups for painting. $\endgroup$ – Gliderman Aug 21 '16 at 20:42
  • $\begingroup$ Nope. I can paint weights but I can't select bones with any of my mouse buttons $\endgroup$ – Dave Goateze Aug 21 '16 at 20:51

    $\begingroup$ The armature has a scale which is not equal to one. Apply scale in edit mode to the armature : ctrl+A then scale $\endgroup$ – lemon Aug 22 '16 at 6:17
