Exclude Envelopes Dialog
Bottom of the Page

Select an object that has the Physique modifier applied to it. Modify panel Envelopes sub-object level Select an envelope. Blending Envelopes rollout Edit Commands group Click Exclude.

At the Envelope sub-object level, this dialog lets you exclude links from influencing other links. For example, you can exclude the right thigh link from influencing the left thigh link. Or, rather than scale the index finger envelopes to avoid influencing middle finger vertices, you might exclude the middle finger links from the index finger links.

TipYou can leave this modeless dialog open while you choose links in the viewports.
NoteIf you have a Physique model created with character studio 1 or 2, excluding links will not work until you reinitialize Physique using the initial skeleton pose. In the Physique Initialization dialog, make sure Vertex-Link Assignments is turned on.
