New tutorial - quick and dirty. Covers the basics of how to create an avatar "layered" mesh, especially how to "copy" the weights from the main avatar mesh onto the copy. This is one of the main techniques used to make skintight clothing.

The basic idea (as shown in the video):
* clone part of the avatar mesh
* tweak the underlying mesh (make it bigger, add or remove polys, etc.)
* put Physique or Skin back on
* when weighting, keep the underlying avatar weight values on the new mesh the same
Ideally, for that last step, the verts of the avatar are close to the verts on your new mesh so weighting is a snap!

The video also talks about push and shell modifiers for easily making a mesh slightly bigger than the avatar mesh - ideal for layered clothing.

If anyone has any questions, let me know!

Link to video (30 min, about 75mb):

Thank you,
ner
