    Hi! After some discussions at the Verge3Day conference we came to understanding that we need to implement some possibilities to change position of the vertexes dirctly using puzzles without bones, separating object etc. So we came with idea to allow puzzles to get access directly to the vertixes, but the problem is how to implement it. In Blender we can give access to Vertex Group, in 3ds max there’s no possibility to create vertex groups (weights) without bones.

    So the question to the community: can someone to direct us how can we make in 3ds Max something the same as Vertex Grops withous using bone system, so we can give access to them t the puzzle and yu will be able to move vertexes not one by one but by groups of them.

    I’m a Blender user so I have no idea how the data structure of 3Ds Max works but could 3Ds Max users, for instance, create bones just for weight painting and creating vertex groups, without using the bones? Then I suppose there would be vertex groups that could be accessed? :unsure:

    for instance, create bones just for weight painting and creating vertex groups, without using the bones?

    Unfortunally there’s no possiblitie (I didn’t find) to assign a vertex weight without skin modifier and a bone system (as easely you can do it in Blender), and the pipeline with the weights will be very difficult to control, so I hope someone can propose another way to do it in 3ds max. I hope that more experienced than me 3ds max users can help. :bye:

    I figured it out, have the 3dmax users go to blender.org, and download Blender 2.8. Problem solved 😊

    Seriously though, why use anything else but Blender? With the 2.8 upgrade, Blender is just going to keep getting bigger & better. And the price is right, its free – nobody will be able to compete with that.

    I agree, but there’s a planty of a good people among 3dsmax users who still can’t find a download section on blender.org, but they want to use Verge3D, so with this act we are prepearing them. When they’ll be ready to use Blender they’ll download it, but will already know the Verge3D engine and this will ease they switch. :yes:
