    Hi Sean, why wouldn’t you use Maya’s default “Copy Skin Weights”? By changing the “Influence Association” on the options menu to “one to one” makes the trick if you have the exact same geometry… or am I missing something?

    Very true. You could just bring in the mesh you want to transfer and copy the skinning over. However I made this video in response to posting on a forum so the approach was geared for what they were trying to do.(Warning, bad pun coming) There’s more than one way to “skin” a cat.
