Member Typedef Documentation

typedef std::map<unsigned int, double> BaseSkin::SkinWeights

Stores the joint weights per vertex.

In general every joint can influence every vertex. In practice only a small number of joints manipulate a vertex. Therefore they are stored in a map using the joint identifier as key. The weights for one vertex are supposed to sum to one.
