About Binding

When you bind skin, you make the surfaces move with the bones. In the beginning the process may seem mysterious; however, it’s really little more than a combination of actions 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 creates a cluster composed 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 11.21).
