Question About Skeleton Deformation tool

It doesn’t seem to be working for me on 2 computers Windows 7 64 bit and a W7 32bit

Here is a video of the issue.

This is based on the Bone-driven Image Distortion (part 3) video.
I seem to be following all the steps although the video has no sound so I could be missing something.
Any help would be appreciated.

Version 1.0 works pretty good. Some crashes but I think I may have some stuff for future tutorials.


Since the tutorial, the behavior has changed a bit. You need to increase the bones influence area to catch all the pixels of the stuff below. The influence area his defend by the bones width handles.

How does one get the “bone width handles” to show up.
As you can see in the video none were present.
Is there a tutorial or video that shows this.


Bone width handles are just width handles. See link and shortcuts link on the page.

There is also this video tutorial:

… which shows how to set up the bones and how to show / use the handles to set the area of influence.
