About Binding

When you bind skin, you are making the surfaces move with the bones. At first the process may seem mysterious, but it is for the most part a combination of what you already know.

We've learned that when you parent a surface to a joint, it rotates with that joint. We also know that a cluster is a set of points that have weight. Binding skin is like a combination of these two things. It creates a cluster that is made up of the points nearest to a bone, and then parents that cluster to the bone. After this is done, you can adjust the weight to make the points rotate more or less with a specific joint (Figure 10.21).
