    I think you did an excellent job writing the script. However, I find it difficult to accept because I must employ the list to pick my inspirations. There has been a major coreball holdup in production. It could be a deal breaker if you plan on using it for very long.

    This is software as software is supposed to be. A tool to work with and not to worry about. Never thought I would ever enjoy weight painting, I do now. Some more documentation or tutorials would be welcome.

    This plugin is just amazing! There is a very original idea behind it, and it's build in a very nice user friendly way! It took me some time to change my way of thinking about painting weights, but now it's much faster, easier and organized. There is no going back :) Thank you for sharing your hard work with everyone!

    Thanks for review, John. I've been looking for ways to provide the viewport-select of influences, but to be frank it's pretty hardcoded in standard skin painting tool, and to allow such feature I'd have to hack maya's internal files, which I don't want... Try layers. With them, you reduce your list to a minimum, it gets much easier from there.

    Love the script - amazing job! That being said i am having a hard time embracing it simply due to the fact that i have to use the list to select my influences. Massive workflow slow down. Possibly even a deal breaker for continued use.
